NEW WORK – Open Call


Prospect Art is looking for visual artists that require financial assistance to finish the production of new work. We are looking to support work by professional artists not currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate programs. The New Work program provides a $1000 mini-grant twice a year to an individual artist or artists' collective. A new project should be in its initial stages and can be completed within the next 6 months. For the summer NEW WORK grant we are specifically looking for works that are not completed and have just been started.


This program supports artists locally, nationally, and internationally. We are interested in conceptual based projects.
