Arts Writers Grant Program

The 2017 grant application is now closed. 

The Arts Writers grant supports writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art. The program issues awards directly to individual authors for articles, blogs, books, new and alternative media, and short-form writing projects. We support a broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.
