Contemporary Art Month (CAM) San Antonio has announced that it will award four micro-grants to artists living and working in the city. 

CAM is a nonprofit organization that promotes contemporary art in San Antonio by organizing an annual month-long city-wide celebration during March. Dr. Lauren Cross, professor at the University of North Texas and independent curator, was the guest curator for this year’s CAM Perennial, an annual exhibition of San Antonio-based artists which coincides with Contemporary Art Month. Friday, March 4 marks this year’s CAM Kick-Off event at Blue Star Contemporary. Learn more about events throughout Contemporary Art Mont via the organization’s website.

CAMGrants are merit-based awards and are intended for artists who are in need of monetary support and at a critical stage in their practice and career. Awardees will each receive $500 in unrestricted funds to use as they see fit. Applications should include an artist bio, artist statement, an explanation of the artist’s need for the grant, and a portfolio of up to five works of art. 

To apply, submit responses via this online form. Applications are due Friday, March 18, 2022 at 11:59 pm, and will be announced by the end of March.
