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 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.
