About Us

Emphasizing direct engagement with contemporary visual art, VIA Art Fund sponsors projects that exemplify our core values of artistic production, thought leadership, and public engagement, VIA–by way of–Art.

Grants in Action

Partnering directly with artists, curators and arts institutions around the world, VIA patrons support innovative artistic endeavors in various forms – exhibitions, public installations, institutional acquisitions, curatorial research, publications, symposia and more.

Curatorial Fellowship

The VIA Curatorial Fellowship awards one grant per annum to an individual in order to foster ambitious curatorial research and enhance VIA’s grantmaking success, providing discretionary funds for exhibition research, travel, or the general development of the curator’s area of inquiry.

Our Collective Impact

Since its founding in 2013, VIA Art Fund has awarded over $2.1 million in grants to a growing number of groundbreaking artists and leading cultural institutions, and has built a coalition of dedicated philanthropists from across the United States.
