Washington Project for the Arts has announced that The Andy Warhol Foundation has awarded WPA $100,000 for artist-organized programs. This is an increase from The Warhol Foundation’s funding of WPA’s programs three years ago and is separate from, and in addition to, the foundation’s support of the WPA’s regional Wherewithal Grants regranting program.
Rachel Bers, the Warhol Foundation’s Program Director, explains the grantmaking process as follows:
“We are pleased to support Washington Project for the Arts and its efforts to center artists as co-creators of both its public programs and its organizational structure. By inviting artists to conceive and curate everything from exhibitions to residencies and symposia, WPA ensures that they are setting the agenda for the conversations — in and beyond the art world — that affect them the most.”
