Harpo Foundation Accepting Applications for ‘New Work Project’ Grants


The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support emerging visual artists, stimulate creative inquiry, and encourage new modes of thinking about art.

To that end, the foundation is inviting Letters of Inquiry for its 2019 New Work Project Grants. Through the annual program, grants of up to $10,000 are awarded to nonprofit organizations in support of new work by underrecognized artists age 21 or older. The foundation will consider proposals that directly support the production of new work by visual artists and/or collaborative teams who are underrecognized in their field. This production may happen in the context of an installation, public intervention, residency, or exhibition.

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

The foundation will accept Letters of Inquiry through April 12, 2019. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by June 7, 2019.

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