The Public Art Building Communities grant program offers funds to eligible artists and nonprofit organizations for the creation and installation of permanent public art projects with a life span of at least five (5) years. Projects must be installed in the District of Columbia and should encourage the growth of quality public art throughout the city, support local artists and nonprofit organizations, and make public art accessible to District residents. Projects must provide exposure of public art to the broader community or to persons traditionally underserved or separated from the cultural mainstream due to geographic location, economic constraints, or disability. Eligible, projects include, but are not limited to: sculpture, mosaics, murals, paving patterns, custom benches, stained glass windows, artistic gates and railing, etc.
Funding is available for all fees associated with the design, fabrication and installation of the artwork(s) including: artist fees, materials, insurance, engineering, shipping, installation services, permit fees, and photographic documentation.
The Commission hosts a series of workshops to assist individuals and organizations in preparing applications and strongly encourages that all applicants attend a workshop prior to submitting a proposal. No prior reservations are required to attend workshops.
Workshops will be held at 1371 Harvard Ave., NW; Washington DC 20009
