The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts recently announced it will award $4 million USD to 47 arts organizations across 23 states as part of its Spring 2020 grant cycle. Founded in 1987, the foundation was created to support contemporary art, particularly work that is experimental, under-recognized or challenging in nature. The funds will be used for curatorial research, exhibitions and other programming.

Grantees that are receiving multi-year support include Chicago’s Black Lunch Table, an ongoing collaboration between artists Jina Valentine and Heather Hart in which cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue on topics directly affecting Black communities, as well as Brooklyn’s Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art.

A total of $142,000 USD will go to curatorial research at three institutions, while 15 museums like the El Museo del Barrio in New York, Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in New Mexico and the Columbus Museum in Georgia will receive funds to support their exhibitions. DePaul Art Museum in Chicago, a first-time grantee, will receive $80,000 USD to create an initiative that focuses on incorporating Latinx artists into its shows and programs.

“At this critical, epoch-defining moment, the contributions of artists to the cultural and political dialogue are more necessary than ever,” said Joel Wachs, President of the Andy Warhol Foundation, in a statement. Rachel Bers, Program Director at the foundation, added, “In the face of the interlocking crises we are facing as a nation and as a society, the foundation is doubling down on its commitment to artists as they grapple with our difficult past, present and future.”
