Harpo Foundation

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are under recognized by the field. The foundation seeks to stimulate creative inquiry to encourage new modes of thinking about art. We view the definitions of art and artist to be open-ended and expansive.

The Foundation’s grant program awards 7-10 grants annually.

Grants are made directly to artists to support their development through the program 'Grants for Visual Artists.' 

Grants are made to non-profit organizations in support of new work by visual artists through the program 'New Work Project Grants.'

The online applications for these grant programs are below.
