Sea Grant offers grants for marine-themed work.

The Visual Arts Program of Sea Grant (Rhode Island) was established in 1988 to encourage New England professional visual artists to address the issue of the environment of the ocean and its coastal communities. Grants are intended to financially assist individual and/or collaborating artists whose works are related to themes of the marine environment. Curatorial proposals will be considered. The grants, up to $2,000, are awarded annually. The deadline for this year's proposals is May 30, 2006.

Applicants are required to submit the following materials:

  1. Ten slides, CD or DVD, of recent work and a list.
    Please identify each work. Specify name, medium, title, date, and dimensions.
  2. A current resume.
  3. A brief statement, outlining the objective of the proposal,
    relevance of the work to ocean environments,
    and the relationship of the proposal to your past work.
  4. Itemized budget including: supplies, services and support personnel.
  5. A self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of slides and materials
    and a self-addressed, stamped postcard to acknowledge receipt and processing.
