The New York–based Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts will award $4 million to 47 arts organizations across 23 states as part of its Spring 2020 grant cycle. Funds will support exhibitions, curatorial research, and other programming.
Among the first-time grantees receiving multi-year support are Black Lunch Table in Chicago and Tri-Star Arts in Nashville, which is producing the inaugural Tennessee Triennial for Contemporary Art, now slated to open in 2022. Fifteen museums—including El Museo del Barrio in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Colby College Museum of Art in Maine, and the Columbus Museum in Georgia—are getting funds to support exhibitions, and the DePaul Art Museum in Chicago, a first-time grantee, will get $80,000 to create a multi-year initiative focused on centering Latinx artists in its shows and programs.
Dimensions Variable was awarded $60,000 over two years.
