National Museum of Women In the Arts Seeks Proposal for Scholarly Books

8 Dec

Founded in 1987, the National Museum of Women in the Arts is the only major museum in the world solely dedicated to recognizing the creative contributions of women. By bringing to light remarkable women artists of the past while also promoting the best women artists working today, the museum directly addresses the gender imbalance in the presentation of art in the U.S. and abroad, thus assuring great women artists a place of honor now and into the future.

To help advance its mission, NMWA has issued a Request for Proposals for the 2014 Suzanne and James Mellor Prize.

The annual $50,000 prize is awarded to the author of the best proposal for a scholarly book on an individual woman artist or subject related to the mission of NMWA. The purpose of the award is to encourage the highest quality scholarship on women artists from any time period or nationality and to enhance the role of the museum in shaping scholarly dialogue on women in the arts.

Mellor Prize funds may be used to cover the costs of travel for research, translate materials not available to an English-language audience, and other costs related to creating the final manuscript. While the proposed book must be able to stand on its own, it can include other media (i.e., CD, DVD, online) as an additional component.

See the NMWA website for complete award guidelines, information about previous winners, and proposal submission instructions.

Launched in 2005 by the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures, the NALAC Fund for the Arts provides a variety of grants to Latino artists and arts organizations in the United States for the development, creation, presentation, and sustainability of artistic excellence, as well as the opportunity to participate in activities that contribute to their professional and organizational growth.

The fund supports Latino working artists, ensembles, and Latino arts organizations that demonstrate artistic excellence in pursuit of social justice through the arts. To date, NFA has awarded over $1 million to a diverse range of artists and organizations representing every discipline and region of the country.

NFA Grants for Latino Artists and Ensembles support the work of individual artists and ensembles in all disciplines. The NFA offers two grant categories for artists and ensembles, including Artist/Ensemble Project grants and Master Artist grants. These grants are open to Latino artists and ensembles in the United States.

1) NFA Artist/Ensemble Project Grant: Designed to recognize excellence in an artist’s body of work and nurture the creative and professional development of the artist, this grant supports individuals whose work demonstrates excellence and the potential for impacting the Latino arts field. Funds may be used to support the creation, development, and/or presentation of work; equipment purchases necessary for artistic production; research and travel; professional and career development; living and studio expenses; technical support, studio assistance, and collaborations; and documentation, production expenses, and maintenance. Up to fourteen project grants of $5,000 each will be awarded during this grant cycle.

2) NFA Master Artist Grant: This grant recognizes established Latino artists for their cultural contributions and significance in their communities and also provides support that enables the master artist to serve as a professional and artistic mentor to another artist. The Master Artist grant will be awarded in support of an exemplary mentor-mentee project that enables knowledge and skill transfer between a master artist and a mentee artist. Up to three $15,000 Master Artist grants will be awarded during this grant cycle.

In addition, NALAC’s NFA Grants for Latino Arts Organizations support the work of arts organizations whose primary focus is Latino arts and culture in any arts discipline.

Interesting Concept: Kickstarter – A New Way to Fund Creativity

28 Aug

Never heard of this, but it is an out-the-box way of getting funding. The Entrepreneurial Spirit at work!

A funding platform for artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs. Post a description of a project you want funded, how much money you need, and a deadline. If enough people pledge the money that you need, everyone is billed. For funding goals that aren’t reached, no one is charged. Since its inception in April 2009, more than 1,000 projects have been funded. Not a grant program! If anyone has used this program successfully, send a note to the web page editor.
