Harpo Foundation Invites Applications for Visual Arts Grants

March 10, 2021Deadline: April 30, 2021

Established in 2006, the Chicago-based Harpo Foundation provides support to emerging and underrecognized visual artists and works to stimulate creative inquiry and encourage new modes of thinking about art.

To that end, the foundation welcomes applications to its Visual Artists Grants program, which will award grants of up to $10,000 to provide direct support to underrecognized visual artists ages 21 years and older. Applications are evaluated on the basis of the quality of the artist’s work, the potential to expand aesthetic inquiry, and its relationship to the foundation’s priority of providing support to visual artists who are underrecognized by the field.

There is a $15 application fee.

To be eligible, applicants must be a U.S. citizen. Students who are enrolled in an undergraduate/graduate program are not eligible.
