Grants of up to $25,000 to Florida individual artists in eligible locations for significant projects. Funding is intended to help working artists create a major visual arts project that will further their careers. The Foundation is looking for innovative ideas that will positively impact the community and be relevant to current times. Grants are open to all Miami-Dade artists. Preference is given to artists who partner with galleries, museums, alternative spaces, or other local arts organizations to present these projects.

The purpose of the grant is to help individual artists realize their ambitious ideas and advance their careers. There are no limits to the scope of the projects. Winning projects could be an exhibition at a gallery, a public art piece, a museum exhibition, or another format. Funds can go toward ongoing projects, or one not yet launched. A project can take place in a public or private space, or online. It’s up to the applicant.

Projects will be evaluated based on the artist’s idea and his/her prior experience, and whether the artist has the ability to bring the project to fruition.
