to expand statewide
Contemporary visual artists in Indiana’s 92 counties
can now apply for the $10,000 grants
The Arts Council of Indianapolis has announced that the DeHaan Artist of Distinction Award program, which supports aspirational and innovative projects by contemporary visual artists, is accepting applications from artists across the state. Artists from any of Indiana’s 92 counties can apply now for the $10,000 grants.
The DeHaan Artist of Distinction Award is intended to allow artists to take risks and push their work in dynamic ways. While Central Indiana served as the pilot for the award program five years ago, the intent was always to expand statewide.
Artists can find more information about the DeHaan Artist of Distinction Award program on the Arts Council’s website. The next application deadline is Nov. 12, and applications are reviewed quarterly. Artists submit a final report after their project is complete and they are invited to be part of a group exhibition at the Arts Council’s Gallery 924.
The fourth annual DeHaan Artist of Distinction Group Exhibition opens Friday, Sept. 3, at Gallery 924, and runs through Oct. 29. It will feature artworks by painter Mason Archie, photographer Eric Lubrick, multidisciplinary artist Samuel Levi Jones, and papel picado artist Beatriz Vásquez.
