Harpo Foundation Seeks Applications for New Work Grants
Harpo Foundation

The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support visual artists who are underrecognized in their field. Among other things, the foundation seeks to stimulate creative inquiry aimed at encouraging new modes of thinking about art.

To that end, the foundation is inviting Letters of Inquiry for its 2016 New Work Project Grants program. Through the annual program, grants of up to $10,000 are awarded to nonprofit organizations in support of new work by under-recognized visual artists who are at least 21 years old. The foundation considers proposals that directly support the production of new work by artists and/or collaborative teams. Productions can happen in the context of an installation, public intervention, residency, or exhibition.

To be eligible, applicant organizations must be considered tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Review Code.

LOIs must be received no later than April 27, 2016. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by June 30, 2016.

For complete program guidelines, information about previous fellowship recipients, and applications instructions, see the Harpo Foundation website.
