The Creative Capital - Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program
http://www.artswriters.org

Initiated by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and administered by Creative Capital, the Arts Writers Grant is a three-year pilot program designed to support critical writing on contemporary visual art through project-based grants issued directly to individual authors. The first program of its type, it was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. Through awards for books, articles, short-form writing, and work in new and alternative media, the Arts Writers Grant aims to honor and encourage: - Writing about art that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise - Writing about contemporary art in which a keen engagement with the present is infused with an appreciation of the historical - Writing about art that is neither afraid to take a stand, nor content to deliver authoritative pronouncements, but serves rather to pose questions and to generate new possibilities for thinking about, seeing, and making art - Writing about art that is sensitive to both the importance and difficulty of situating aesthetic objects within their broader social and political contexts - Writing about art that does not dilute or sidestep complex ideas but renders accessible their meaning and value - Writing about art that challenges creatively the limits of existing conventions, without valorizing novelty as an end in itself Approximately fifteen to twenty grants will be awarded per annual cycle, ranging from $3,000-$50,000. Art historians, artists, critics, curators, journalists, and practitioners from other fields that engage contemporary visual art are welcome to apply. The Arts Writers Grant will open for on-line submissions on August 6, 2007. The deadline for grant applications is September 12, 2007.
