Artistic Production

VIA Art Fund accepts Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) on a semiannual basis. We are no longer accepting LOIs for Artistic Production support for our Spring 2019 Grant Cycle. Information and guidelines for our next Grant Cycle, Fall 2019, will be posted by February 2019.


Incubator Grant Program

Starting in 2019, VIA and Wagner Foundation are partnering to establish a five-year, $1 million Incubator Grant Fund. The fund aims to build a robust and inclusive national arts ecosystem by awarding unrestricted funding to small-scale to mid-size nonprofit organizations throughout the Unite States.

Proposals will be reviewed on an annual basis between January 1 and May 10, 2019, with five organizations receiving support each year. For further information regarding the fund, timeline, eligibility, and LOI submission guidelines please click here.


Curatorial Fellowship

The Curatorial Fellowship is not open sourced; VIA accepts and reviews nominations from colleagues, constituents, and partners, then invites select curators to submit a proposal.


For our Grant Cycle Timelines and further information please refer to our Grant Program FAQs. Due to the high volume of correspondence we receive, we cannot take general inquiries by phone. For any questions, please email [email protected].

We appreciate your interest in VIA Art Fund.
