The Durfee Foundation has announced the deadlines for the 2004 ARC grant program. ARC grants are awarded on a quarterly basis to approximately 10 Los Angeles artists. The artists can be working with any medium. Grant requests may be for up to $2,500. Applications must be postmarked on or before the following deadlines:
First Quarter: February 3, 2004For presentations between March 4 and August 4, 2004
Second Quarter: May 4, 2004For presentations between June 3 and November 3, 2004
Third Quarter: August 3, 2004For presentations between September 2, 2004 and February 2, 2005
Fourth Quarter: November 3, 2004For presentations between December 3, 2004 and May 3, 2005
The purpose of the grant is to fund enhancement expenses for work that has a secured commitment to be exhibited by an outside organization (i.e. not a self-produced show), and funds may be used to cover such expenses as the purchase of material, rental of equipment or rehearsal space, travel, shipping, or fees for collaborating artists -- anything that would expand or enhance the proposed work. Exhibitions may be anywhere in the world. The selection panel does not judge the work itself, but primarily considers 1) the impact of the exhibition on the artist's career and 2) the impact of the funds on the presentation of the work.
