The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

Arts Writing Initiative

INDIVIDUALS AND JOURNALS

The Arts Writing Initiative addresses another essential but under-funded area in the arts: criticism and general writing about the visual arts.  The project has two components: grants to writers, which support various types of projects, from books to essays to experimental writing in new media; and grants to non-profit arts publications.  
 

INDIVIDUALS

The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program supports writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art through project-based grants, ranging from 5,000 to 50,000 USD, issued directly to twenty individual authors a year. The program was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. The Arts Writers Grant Program aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship. Writers who meet the program’s eligibility requirements are invited to apply in the following categories:

Articles
Blogs
Books
New and Alternative Media
Short-Form Writing

The 2014 Grant Application is closed. Grantees will be announced on December 4. For more information about this program or to apply, please visit the Arts Writers website. To receive schedule updates please join the email list.


JOURNALS


Grants to art publications are no longer offered by the Foundation, except through our regular program grants. See guidelines here. As part of the Warhol Initiative, the Foundation previously offered capacity-building assistance to help invited publications to achieve greater financial stability, increase audiences, and explore new forms of publishing, partnerships and distribution strategies. Publications included in this program are listed below.
