The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant
Applications due May 18, 2022
The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant supports emerging and established writers who write about contemporary visual art. Ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 in three categories—articles, books, and short-form writing—the grants support projects addressing both general and specialized art audiences, from short reviews for magazines and newspapers to in-depth scholarly studies. We also support art writing that engages criticism through interdisciplinary methods and experiments with literary styles. As long as a writer meets the eligibility and publishing requirements, they can apply.
FORMAT Festival Gateway Design Submission
Submissions due May 18, 2022
FORMAT seeks proposals from Arkansas-based artists for an entryway gate to the festival site, a natural landing strip enclosed by a ravine and wooded hills, located five minutes from downtown Bentonville. The gate will be the first touchpoint for visitors to the festival, and should represent the vibrant artistic spirit of the region, placing the chosen artist’s work in dialogue with projects by some of the most respected and well-known artists in the world. Artists are asked to create designs that can be affixed to a scaffolding archway, which the festival producer (C3 Presents) will fabricate and install based on the artist’s design.
