The Indiana Arts Commission has announced that it will accept applications for individual artist grants through February 7, 2014. Grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded. The criteria for the grants include impact on artist development, feasibility of the project, quality of work and public benefit.
Last year’s winner was D. DelReverda-Jennings for her project “HORIZON: Contemporary Indiana Artists of Color” a literary concept created to bring about greater awareness and appreciation for Indiana native or resident artists of African descent practicing visual art disciplines.
The Individual Artist Program (IAP) was created in 1999 to provide support to artists in all disciplines for career development projects. The program cycle runs from July 1 to June 30 and offers flexibility to respond to artists’ needs and goals. Applicants must plan a project, or phase of a project, which can be realized within the requested budget and completed within the proposed timeline.
