Interlace Grant Fund is proud to announce the inaugural nine recipients of Project Grants for visual arts projects produced and presented in Providence. The grants, totaling more than $50,000, support new and experimental work by local artists who have visions for projects that might otherwise fall outside of traditional arts funding opportunities. Grantees range from unincorporated groups of collaborating artists to individual artists whose work facilitates unique engagements with various contexts and publics.
We at Interlace are thrilled to support these artists’ visions for creating adventurous and timely artwork in our city. We are grateful to our first cohort of grantees, the nearly 60 artists and artist collaboratives who applied, our thoughtful jury panel, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts for their lead support of this initiative. There is an incredibly vibrant artist community in Providence, and we look forward to seeing how the awarded artists’ projects benefit the arts community and audiences alike.
