Art Matters is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2017 grants to individual artists. The foundation awarded 22 fellowships of 7,500 USD each for ongoing work that breaks ground aesthetically and socially.

In addition to grants to individuals, Art Matters made a special grant to Lower Manhattan Cultural Council for A Supple Perimeter, an exhibition of work by Art Matters grantee Kameelah Janan Rasheed at LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island in summer 2017.

In announcing the grants, Art Matters Director Sacha Yanow said, “We are thrilled to support this extraordinary group of artists from across the US. A diverse and expansive range of contemporary practice within various geographic and cultural contexts, their work engages justice and liberation issues and experiments with form. We feel their voices are important and through our funding, we hope to help amplify them.”
