Forecast Public Art is inviting applications for its Jerome Project Grant program.
Through the program, a grant of up to $8,000 will be awarded for a publicly accessible temporary or permanent artwork anywhere in the state of Minnesota by an emerging Minnesota-based public artist. Projects may be in any form or discipline, including performance, dance, storytelling, photography, film, sculpture, and painting, as long as there is a visual focus.
In addition, grant recipients will be provided with a series of activities that enhance their learning experience during the grant period. Grantee meetings provide a forum for dialogue among grant recipients focused on their projects, progress, and challenges. Specific meeting themes change on a yearly basis and are designed to cater to the needs of participants during a given grant round. Activities connecting grantees with professional public artists take a variety of formats, from facilitated conversations to portfolio reviews.
A short year-end film detailing the work of each grantee is produced (pending funding) through a unique partnership with IFP North, providing participants with documentation of their projects or research.
To be eligible, applicants must be an emerging visual artist and a resident of Minnesota who has physically lived in the state for twelve of the past twenty-four months and remain a resident throughout the project period.
