Are you an artist or arts collective who has more in common with Pablo Helguera and Mel Chin than Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst? Well, then scroll over to A Blade of Grass and apply for the organization’s annual $20,000 Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art (artists Pablo Helguera and Mel Chin were two of last year’s recipients).
Why should you do this?
- It’s easy. You can apply online, and A Blade of Grass is giving all applicants a helping hand with sample letters of inquiry available online, and tips given out daily on Twitter.
- $20,000. For once, your artist project might create dreams money can buy.
- You can think big. What type of big and bold plan do you have to involve the community-at-large? It doesn’t matter if you’re well-known or not—you can be an artist, a collective, anyone over the age of 25—A Blade of Grass wants to hear your ideas.
Now go stop thinking about Thanksgiving, Ryder Ripps, or anything else because you have less than one week to come up with the socially engaged project of the year. The deadline is November 24, 2014.
