A Blade of Grass Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art

August 11, 2016


We fund artists working nationwide, as well as artists based in the US who are working internationally. Artists or artist collectives working independently. US citizens, or US residents with legal work status. At least 25 years of age. Have projects that engage directly with a specific community or communities. Have a website with contextualized examples of past work that a selection panel can review.

Not eligible if currently enrolled as students; registered as 501c3 nonprofit organizations are not eligible to apply; received an ABOG Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art as an individual or as part of an artist collective in the last 3 years.


We provide resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. We evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue.
