Power Plant Grants energize the Indianapolis arts community and support visual artists by encouraging them to grow by taking chances, realizing untapped potential, trying experimental projects, collaborating with each other, and bringing work to unusual places. Power Plant Grants annually support visual artists who live, work, or run spaces in Indianapolis with project grants ranging from $2,000 to $10,000. Selections are made by an independent panel and up to 10 individual artists or teams will receive a maximum of $6,000 and an artist-run space may receive a grants up to $10,000.
“We strive to support institutions that share our artist-centered values. The small grassroots arts organizations as well as the museums that comprise our grantees provide invaluable opportunities for artists to express their unique perspectives on the pressing urgencies of the day. We hope that our grants help to amplify artists’ voices within their communities, in national discussions and debates, and across platforms in the international contemporary art world.”
