Art Matters



Art Matters is a foundation created to assist artists intending to break ground aesthetically and socially. Support is provided to encourage exploration of issues and ideas; experimentation in visual arts, media, and performance; and presentation of new art.

Current Program:

Art Matters awards approximately $200,000 annually to U.S. artists for projects that are socially engaged with a focus on local, national and/or global concerns. We fund individuals, collectives and collaborative teams working all visual media including experimental performance, and film.

Requests may be made for:

• Travel or research (either within the US or abroad) • Materials, production and presentation expenses
