Grant Opportunities
Forecast Public Art
St. Paul, MN

Our mission is to strengthen and advance the field of public art locally, nationally and internationally by expanding participation, supporting artists, informing audiences and assisting communities.

Artist Grants + Opportunities

Forecast Public Art's annual grant program, established in 1989, supports emerging, visual artists residing in the state of Minnesota.

These grants provide artists the chance to develop and create projects for a public audience anywhere in the state, receive increased recognition, and advance their artistic careers.

Category Three Update:
University Avenue Commission $3000

The 2009 Commission will be for a temporary billboard project at the northwest corner of University and Cleveland. Forecast will negotiate billboard rental, fabrication and installation. The $3000 amount will go directly to the artist for research and design fees. Applicants may use the application form (at right) but are not required to submit a budget. Narrative should speak to how your work and/or concept idea will address or reference the billboard site.

Review Process
2009 Grant Recipients announced February 7, 2009.

Forecast Public Art invites an independent panel to consider all eligible grant applications and recommend projects for funding. The members of this panel will include professionals from the Twin Cities, from greater Minnesota, and from outside the state, experienced in creating, critiquing, or curating public art. Selection will be based on the quality of the proposal, quality of work samples, value of project to applicant's artistic development and perceived benefit to the community (as defined by the applicant).
