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.

(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)
