Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program Open for Submissions
The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program provides grants directly to individual writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art. The grant program is spearheaded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of its broader Arts Writing Initiative and is administered by Creative Capital.
The grant program was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture.
The program, which issues awards for articles, blogs, books, new and alternative media, and short-form writing, aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.
To be eligible, an applicant must be an individual; an art historian, artist, critic, curator, journalist, or practitioner in an outside field who is strongly engaged with the contemporary visual arts; a United States citizen, permanent resident of the U.S., or holder of an O-1 visa; at least 25 years old; and a published author (specific publication requirements vary depending on project type category). Please note that work published in college newspapers and undergraduate student-run publications will not be considered toward the published author requirement.
The program supports approximately twenty to twenty-five projects each year. Grants range from $3,000 to $50,000, depending on the needs and scope of the project.
