Art Matters considers applications by invitation only. Each year we select a group of artists, curators, and other arts leaders from across the country to nominate artists to apply. We award grants of 5,000 and 10,000 USD to individual artists and collective teams working in contemporary art and performance for projects or ongoing work.
Priority is given to artists working with social issues and experimenting with form. We fund activities at any point in the artistic process, from early research to production and presentation.
