Forecast Public Art Annual Grant Program – Deadline February 6th


Forecast’s  annual grant program supports emerging, visual artists and interdisciplinary teams led by visual artists residing in the state of Minnesota.
These grants provide artists the chance to develop and create projects for a public audience anywhere in the state, receive increased recognition, and advance their artistic careers.A limited amount of consulting and/or facilitation time is provided by Forecast Public Art staff.

New in 2010, Forecast is excited to announce new funding opportunities
with three of Minnesota’s Regional Arts Councils!

As a result of these partnerships we have added three additional granting opportunities for residents living in the counties associated with the East Central Regional Arts Council, the Central MN Arts Board, and the Southwest MN Arts and Humanities Council.

These new opportunities join our already established Public Project grants and our Research and Development grants (both of which are open to applicants statewide as well).
