The National Endowment for the Arts has set aside $1 million to support projects “to encourage the creation of and greater public engagement with art relating to the work and mission of our national park system.”
Through the Art Works category, we encourage projects that engage communities with and relate the arts to these memorable places and the landscapes they preserve. We also invite a new generation of Americans to find their park. Projects might include the commissioning and presentation of new work in or near one of these locations, or festivals in these settings. Additional project examples are listed in these guidelines for each artistic discipline.
Interested artists and organizations should plan to view the January 21 webinar for more information.
The next ArtWorks program deadline is February 19. Eligible activities vary somewhat by discipline.
