Information Sessions:

The Arts in Society grant program announces another year of funding to support cross-sector work in the arts across Colorado

Beginning July 16, applications will be accepted for funding through the Arts in Society grant program. The purpose of Arts in Society is to foster cross-sector work through the arts by supporting the integration of arts and culture into multiple disciplines critical to the health and well-being of Coloradans. The Arts in Society grant program funds projects that engage arts organizations and artists as partners in illuminating and finding solutions to a wide array of civic and social challenges faced by our communities. Grants between $10,000-$50,000 will be available to non-profit organizations and individual artists or activists to fund projects that will take place in Colorado between April 2019-April 2021.

Grants will be determined by a selection panel and will seek projects that best illustrate artistic excellence, broaden the understanding of the role arts play in society, demonstrate cross-sector work, exhibit cultural relevance, foster community engagement, and present opportunities for shared learning.

Arts in Society is a collaborative grantmaking program administered by RedLine Contemporary Art Center and funded through a cohort of Colorado foundations, including Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and Colorado Creative Industries.

The Center for Fine Art Photography Call for Entries: Abstract

Entries Due by August 5, 2018

Images: Randi Ganulin & Michael Koerner

In trying to define the undefinable, we say that abstracts have subjects transformed to their essential elements or into non-objects, or simply to non-representational images. Admittedly, Abstract is hard to define and artist interpretations are welcome as part of this conversation on a significant and current photographic direction. Emerging to established artists are encouraged to submit. All types of photographic processes and presentations are eligible.

Juror: All images will be selected by Elizabeth Houston, Owner and Director of Elizabeth Houston Gallery, NYC. The gallery’s initiation to the contemporary scene imbues fresh voices from artists who work in the present and explore a cornucopia of facets. The Gallery is committed to bringing their artists work to exhibitions both home and abroad and has met success with collectors and critics alike and been reviewed in The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, The Village Voice, and The New York Times among others.
