2. Up to $100K for the arts

The guiding principle of “Art Works” is at the center of everything we do at the NEA. “Art Works” refers to three things: the works of art themselves, the ways art works on audiences, and the fact that art is work for the artists and arts professionals who make up the field. To make “art work,” the NEA has included the advancement of innovation as a core component of its mission as a way to ensure the vitality of the arts. Deadline: August 8, 2013.
