Fund for Community Art

The Fund for Community Art is a program that provides financial resources directly to visual artists through the Foundation’s nonprofit partners across the United States and Puerto Rico for artists to work on public works of art within their local communities. Artists make their works of art accessible to the community by creating and producing art right where the community lives and works.

The program funds projects such as public murals, community public art displays – including photography, youth community projects involving artists and other local arts creative initiatives working directly with local visual artists.
