Grants of up to $2,500 are available and matching funds are required.
Arts Project Grants enable organizations and groups whose primary mission may or may not be arts-based to develop and provide arts-based projects to the general public. Applicants may apply for up to $2,000 for arts projects such as festivals, exhibitions, concerts and other innovative public presentations that advance the arts in a community or geographic region.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer a variety of funding opportunities for the many organizations across the state that provide valuable access to the arts in their communities,” said Margaret Hunt, Director of Utah Arts & Museums.
