Purpose

The Annual Grant Program (AGP) provides financial assistance to artists, artist teams, and/or scholars of any medium to help fund public art works, art performances, and events that promote or support any type of public art. Projects can be temporary or permanent. The program was established to beautify our community, promote our cultural identity, and to encourage artistic engagement.

Funding

Accepted grantees can receive up to $1,500, but no more than 50% of the total project costs. Total grant amounts will be determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on overall project impact and funding availability. 

The Public Art Annual Grant Program can fund:

Artist’s fees, legally-required royalties, production expenses, space rental, marketing costs, purchase of expendable supplies, required insurance, and city-related expenses such as street closures, and police or fire protection.

The Public Art Annual Grant Program cannot fund:

Prizes or awards, scholarships, tuition, permanent equipment, travel outside Green Bay, refreshments, and/or debts incurred for past activities.
