Vermont: Animating Infrastructure Grant
The Vermont Arts Council (VAC) has a new program to fund public art projects that foster civic pride and community cohesion by reflecting the vision, values and creative spirit of Vermont citizens. The Animating Infrastructure program awards nonmatching grants of $1,000-$15,000 for collaborative projects through which artists partner with communities to integrate artwork into existing or new infrastructure. This infrastructure is broadly defined as anything that serves a community, including buildings, parks, trails, bike paths, bridges and small-scale renewable energy installations. Grant funds cover artist fees and the costs of artwork fabrication and installation. Eligible projects are to enliven public spaces and community spirit and may be carried out by municipal governments, nonprofit organizations, schools, libraries, downtown associations, chambers of commerce and other groups. By supporting the work of Vermonters animating their built, natural and social environments, VAC aims to cultivate unique and inspiring creative place-making efforts around the state as well as to document the lasting impact of public art.
