The Idea Fund is a re-granting program administered by DiverseWorks in partnership with Aurora Picture Show and Project Row Houses. The Idea Fund provides grants for artist-generated or artist-centered projects that exemplify unconventional, interventionist, conceptual, entrepreneurial, participatory, or guerrilla artistic practices. The Idea Fund awards 12 visual arts project grants in the amount of $5,000 each. Project activities must function primarily within, or have a strong connection to the visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpture, social practice, performance, film/video, photography, textiles, ceramics, cross-disciplinary, public art, new media, and digital processes etc.)
The Idea Fund
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is established in New York, NY. His will called for the creation of a foundation dedicated to “advancement of the visual arts,” and he left nearly his entire estate to the cause.
