The Urgent Art Fund

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

In addition to financial support—in the amount of 10 grants of $5,000 distributed throughout 2021—SPACES will provide access to our on-site artist workshop that is outfitted with tools and equipment to facilitate the production process. SPACES staff will also assist grantees in securing a public exhibition or display space in Cuyahoga County. Grantees will receive an annual SPACES Season Pass membership, which gives them free access to networking and artist professional development opportunities throughout the year.

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-person or virtual) 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, 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 Annual Membership, which gives them free access to networking and artist professional development opportunities throughout the year.
