Artists, cultural groups asked to apply for grants


Local artists and nonprofit cultural organizations are invited to apply to the 1994 CityArts Grants Program for funds to support arts programming in community settings.

Operated by the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Art and Culture, grants are offered to community arts projects by individual artists and nonprofit cultural organizations and also to help these organizations with general operating funds. (There are no general funding grants to individual artists.)

Those eligible include professional artists who are at least 18, live in Baltimore City and possess the ability to administer a community arts project. Hobbyists and students should not apply.

The deadline to submit proposals is Feb. 11. For details, call (410) 396-4575.


The application deadline is Jan. 29 for visual artists interested in participating in exhibitions at School 33 Art Center during the 1994-1995 gallery season.

Artists must live within a 75-mile radius of Baltimore City. Each applicant may submit either an individual proposal, a group proposal or an installation space project proposal. An independent gallery exhibition panel will review the applications and artists' slides. For details, call (410) 396-4641 or (410) 396-4642 TDD.
