OPPORTUNITIES FOR ARTISTS 

The Urgent Art Fund

SPACES offers project-based support through The Urgent Art Fund to Cuyahoga County artists, supported by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. This support may go toward production expenses and artist commissions for the creation of “urgent art” that is socially, politically, or culturally responsive. We are designating funds specifically for such projects taking place in the public realm, helping artists immediately engage their community in dialogue about the most pressing issues.

In addition to financial support— $4,000 awarded to 12 artists/collectives —SPACES will provide access to our on-site artist workshops that are outfitted with tools and equipment to facilitate the production process. SPACES Artist Initiatives Coordinator will also assist grantees in securing a public display space (outside of SPACES) in Cuyahoga County. Grantees will receive a one-year SPACES Artist level Membership, which gives them free access to networking and artist professional development opportunities throughout the year.

Projects MUST be completed by November 31, 2022 regardless of date awarded.

This year artists will have the opportunity to apply quarterly. Each quarter, our jurors will select 4 artists to receive The Urgent Art Fund Grant who will then have until November 31st to complete and display their project. Artists have the following quarterly deadlines to apply:

June 10, 2022 - August 5, 2022

The Satellite Fund

The Satellite Fund, administered by SPACES and supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, is an opportunity for Cuyahoga County artists, curators, and cultural producers to create a public visual art project in Cuyahoga County. This grant is not only for established visual artists in the community, but also for emerging artists, creative professionals, and any Cuyahoga County resident with a strong vision and demonstrated ability to complete the proposed project. The scope is purposefully broad; we want this opportunity to be as accessible and far-reaching as possible to ensure we represent Cuyahoga County to the fullest. 

In addition to financial support-- $6,000 awarded to 10 artists/collectives-- SPACES will provide access to our on-site artist workshops that is outfitted with tools and equipment to facilitate the production process. SPACES Artist Initiatives Coordinator will also assist grantees in securing a public display space (outside of SPACES) in Cuyahoga County. Additionally, awardees will receive a one-year SPACES Artist level Membership, which gives them free access to networking and artist professional development opportunities throughout the year.
