Funding | New Creative Artwork Grant
Deadline: Wed. Feb 10, apply via UFunds

The Department of Visual Art, Brown Arts Initiative, and David Winton Bell Gallery announce a new funding opportunity for all currently enrolled Brown University students: the Creative Artwork Grant. With the limitations resulting from COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, hosting an exhibition in 2021 proves to be an impossible task. The Department of Visual and our partners seek to shine a bit of light in these troubling times by encouraging the development of new artwork. In place of an exhibition this year, a jurying committee composed of Department of Visual Art Undergraduate Group leaders (DUGs) and BAI student representatives will award funding to support the creation of new works: the Creative Artwork Grant.
