In an effort to further the Foundation’s mission to expand creative inquiry through inclusivity and equitable representation in the visual arts, we have decided to discontinue the New Work Project Grants program to expand resources available to under-recognized Native American contemporary visual artists.  Starting in 2024, The Impact Award for Native American Art will offer an annual $25,000 fellowship aimed at amplifying the contributions of contemporary Native artists.

Over the past 15 years, Harpo Foundation’s New Work Project Grants have provided over 100 non-profit organizations with funding to help realize artist projects. Though we are sad to no longer offer this avenue of funding, we are confident that our new Impact Award initiative will continue the Foundation’s legacy of supporting under-recognized visual artists.
