Individual Artist Grants
for Developing or
Establish Career Artists
Application Deadline:
July 19, 2017 * 4:30 pm
Earliest Project Start Date:
September 15, 2017

INDIVIDUAL ARTIST grants provide funding for a variety of activities designed to aid in public awareness of the artist's work or projects that will aid in the progression to, and/or exploration of a new level in their artistic development and professional career. Up to $2000 (for Developing Artists), or $5000 (for Established Career Artists).  NO cash match required. 

A note of encouragement:
Although this is a quick turnaround, we encourage you to apply during this added  July round, since we have funds that we must award by the end of August.   Take a chance, dive into summer with an art project funded by a SMAC Individual Artist grant.

* Individual artist grants from Southwest Minnesota Arts Council are made possible by the McKnight Foundation.  
SMAC grants must be applied for online.
