Grants for Emerging Artitsts' Avante-Garde Art Projects

From The Foundation Center...

Franklin Furnace Announces Open Call for Artists Deadline: April 1, 2008 The mission of the Franklin Furnace Archive ( ) is to present, preserve, interpret, proselytize, and advocate on behalf of avant-garde art, especially forms that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect, their ephemeral nature, or politically unpopular content.

As part of that mission, Franklin Furnace annually awards project-based grants to emerging artists, allowing them to produce major works in New York. Works may engage the Internet as an art medium and/or venue. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply. Full-time students are ineligible. Grants will range between $2,000 and $5,000 each.

Visit the Franklin Furnace Web site for complete program information and examples of previously funded projects. RFP Link:

her shoe addiction, I admire your pluck! As long as your friend is not a student, it sounds like she has a chance in receiving funds. Go to Franklin Furnace's website (link is above) and read the requirements in the RFP. Proceed following each and every requirement. Read my blog for specific 'how to's' along the way in the grant seeking process. Good luck!
