Indianapolis, Ind. — The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today that 38 Hoosier artists throughout the state will receive career development assistance through the agency's Individual Artist Program (IAP) grants for Fiscal Year 2015.
The IAC this year accepted grant applications from artists in the visual arts for projects in visual art, photography, media arts, crafts, as well as from folk and access artists for projects related to these traditional disciplines. As in years past, artists could request grant amounts up to $2,000 for career development assistance projects.
“These individual artists represent the heart of the creative economy in our state,” said IAC Executive Director Lewis C. Ricci. “Their projects supported by these grants help them further their career development, but also provides opportunities for their talents to be shared in their communities through exhibitions, demonstrations, and instructional opportunities.”
Earlier this year volunteer citizen peer panels, convened by the IAC, reviewed 135 Individual Artist Program project proposals. The IAP grants were among nearly 300 funding recommendations for artists and community-based cultural program providers approved June 20, 2014 during the Commission’s quarterly business meeting in Indianapolis.
The Indiana Arts Commission is dedicated to the vision of the arts everywhere, everyday, for everyone in Indiana.
