Anonymous Was a Woman and the New York Foundation for the Arts are giving $250,000 to women-identifying artists over 18 who create “environmental public art projects in the United States and its territories.” The program, which parallels Anonymous Was a Woman’s annual $25,000 grants to women over 40, will provide up to $20,000 to each artist.
According to Hyperallergic, “Qualifying themes include clean energy production, climate change, bioplastics, and ecofeminism, among others. The projects must both benefit and engage the public, and online programming is an accepted medium.” Artists who are animal advocates: Let’s make animals part of environmental public art! The deadline is June 15. (Thank you, CAF board member Suzanne Pender, for alerting us to this.) Image: Underground by Adia Millett
