The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) has launched a new grant program designed to further the agency’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access initiative. The Curatorial Grant Program helps local curators develop and present compelling visual art exhibitions in service to residents of Washington, D.C. The program awards two curators with previous experience an opportunity to stage an innovative and educational exhibition in the agency’s 200 I Street Galleries. It also provides each of them with up to $25,000 in grant funding to underwrite their curatorial vision and related public outreach. Grant funds can be used to cover the costs of artwork commissions, consultant services, artwork shipping and insurance, installation and deinstallation, and public programming, among other things. Through this program, CAH aims not only to develop curators’ practices and careers but also to encourage the creation of art shows that increase the visibility of emerging and underrepresented artists in Washington, D.C. An additional goal is to support exhibitions that attract residents who might not have a strong affinity with the city’s private art galleries and federally funded art museums. For more information, contact CAH Curator Zoma Wallace.
