Nasher Introduces Microgrant Program for Artists

by Christina Rees February 13, 2015

2015-microgrant-bannerThe Nasher Sculpture Center has announced its Nasher Sculpture Center Artist Microgrants program, which will distribute small-sum grants to North Texas artists. Twice a year a jury chosen by the Nasher will pick artist recipients, who will be eligible for grants ranging from $250-$1000 for the purpose of supporting their projects and practices.

Via the Nasher: “The microgrants aim to champion artistic excellence and encourage innovation, collaboration and engagement within the local visual art community. In addition, by bringing in jurors from the international and regional art communities to meet the grant recipients and discuss their work, Nasher Artist Microgrants will help bridge the gap between the North Texas art scene and the world.”

The deadline for the first round is April 3, with the grant recipients to be announced May 1. The program’s first jurors are: “Dallas artists Frances Bagley, Annette Lawrence, and John Pomara and the Chicago-based artist Tony Tasset, as well as Nasher Assistant Curator Leigh Arnold and Nasher Curator of Education Anna Smith.”
