The Graham Foundation For Advanced Studies In The Fine Arts
|Category: Arts & Culture
Founded in 1956 by a bequest from prominent Chicago architect Ernest R. Graham, the Foundation focuses its grantmaking on architecture and related spatial practices that address a wide range of cultural, social, political, technological, environmental, and aesthetic issues. Of particular interest are projects that investigate the contemporary condition, expand historical perspectives, or explore the future of architecture and the designed environment. Grants are awarded for thought-provoking investigations in architecture, engineering, urban planning, urban studies, visual arts, and related fields. The Foundationís Production and Presentation Grants support individuals and organizations in the conceptualization and implementation of projects for the public realm. These may include, but are not limited to, publications, exhibitions, installations, conferences, films, new-media projects, and other public programs. The normal maximum grant is $30,000. More details including an online letter of inquiry form can be found on the Web site. The inquiry form will open January 7, 2009.
