Harpo Foundation
Mission The foundation only gives grants to non-profit institutions that support artists who are under recognized by the field. This applies to all artists whether emerging or further along in their careers. We view the definitions of art and artist to be open-ended and expansive.

Proposals to the foundation can take the form of installations, public interventions, residencies and exhibitions where the artist is commissioned to create new work. All proposals must include a project description, examples of the artist’s work, and a resume. It must also contain a budget identifying the artist’s honorarium, project costs, and total budget. All materials must be submitted on a single disk in digital format, mailed to the foundation’s address, or via e-mail to proposals@harpofoundation.org. Texts must be placed in Microsoft word and images in PowerPoint or PDF format. Proposals must also be submitted in hard copy. The foundation’s grants must only be used for artist’s honorarium and direct cost of the project. Grants will usually not exceed 10,000 USD.

The deadline will be April 1, 2009. Grantees will be notified by November 1, 2009.

Projects and work that advance and cross the boundaries of media and artistic disciplines will be given first consideration. Proposals will be judged on the basis of the quality of the artist’s work and the potential to expand aesthetic inquiry.

Our advisors will review the proposals and make recommendations to the board that will be responsible for the final decision.
