nmalogo-300x67-2457275-6173197SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

Due to increasing demand, the Nevada Museum of Art’s Artists | Writers | Environments Grant Program (A | W | E) has been extended.

Recognized internationally for its Center for Art +Environment (CA+E), the Museum’s recently announced grant program for visual artists and writers working together in the field has proven quite popular, resulting in updated deadlines to meet the demand.

Funding for the program is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.


Teams of visual artists and writers working on art + environment projects anywhere in the world from July 2010 through August 2011 will be eligible to apply for the first A | W | E Grant. Letters of interest must be received via e-mail on or before Friday, April 16, 2010 with invited applications due on or before June 22, 2010. The grant recipients will be announced on or before July 6, 2010.

The program is designed to:

· encourage the creation of new art + environment projects addressing environmental challenges rather than simply comment on them

· to foster deeper and more immediate public awareness of art + environment projects

· to encourage unique field reports of lasting value to scholars and other artists.

During this first year, one grant of $10,000 will be awarded to a team of artist(s) and writer(s) – of particular interest will be those proposals addressing communities stressed by global change. Publication venues by writers can include articles in magazines, journals, or online, and chapters or essays in books, but significant public outreach will be favored.
