Artpace Travel Journal: 2008 Travel Grant Recipient Lecture
Join 2008 Travel Grant recipients for an evening of recollection. The artists give a short presentation on their experience, made possible by Artpace's annual Travel Grant. A short information session on how to apply for the 2009 Travel Grant follows. Travel Grant recipients include Ricky Armendariz, Justin Boyd, and Julia Barbosa Landois, and Jessica Halonen.
In an effort to foster the growth and vision of an artist's career and encourage an ongoing dialogue between local and international art communities, Artpace San Antonio is pleased to announce a call for Travel Grant applications through online submissions.
Please note that this Travel Grant opportunity is only available to those currently working and living in Bexar County . Applicants from other states/counties will not be considered. Full-time staff members and current students are not eligible to apply.
There may be more than one grant recipient per year; however, the total amount dispersed will not exceed $5,000. The award will assist an artist with travel related to his or her creative growth. Proposals may include research or project-specific travel to visit an exhibition, collection, institution, or geographic location.
To download the Travel Grant application, visit www.artpace.org beginning April 1, 2009. All applications will be accepted through www.artpace.org. FAX, e-mail, mail, or other delivery methods are not allowed. Deadline is Wednesday, April 29 at 5:00pm.
(Note: this is a pretty dry and informational CurBlog post, I know. I have a cold. I will do more interesting ones, starting tomorrow. BUT SERIOUSLY, ARTISTS, YOU SHOULD GO FOR THIS TRAVEL GRANT. --Fisch)
