Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant

Deadline: Wednesday, June  6, 2012
Open to: individual writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art
Grant: the grants range  from $3,000 to $50,000


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.  Designed to encourage and reward writing about contemporary art that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise, as well as to create a broader audience for arts writing, the Arts Writers Grant Program aims to strengthen the field as a whole and to ensure that critical writing remains a valued mode of engaging the visual arts. 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


Grants range from $3,000 to $50,000, depending on the needs and scope of the project.


To be eligible for this grant, an arts writer must be

  •  an individual;
  • an art historian, artist, critic, curator, journalist, or practitioner in an outside field who is strongly engaged with the contemporary visual arts;
  • a U.S. citizen, permanent resident of the United States, or holder of an O-1 visa;
  • at least twenty-five years old;
  • a published author (specific publication requirements vary depending on grant category). Please note that work published in college newspapers and undergraduate student-run publicationswill not be considered toward this requirement.
