SPACES is offering project-based support through The Urgent Art Fund to Cuyahoga County artists, in partnership with Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. This support may go toward production expenses and artist commission for the creation of “urgent art” that is socially, politically, or culturally responsive. By designating funds specifically for such projects taking place in the public realm, we can help artists immediately engage their community in dialogue about the most pressing issues.

In addition to financial support—in the amount of 5 grants of $5,000 distributed throughout 2020—SPACES will provide access to our on-site artist workshops that are outfitted with tools and equipment to facilitate the production process. SPACES staff will also assist grantees in securing a public exhibition or display space in Cuyahoga County. Grantees will receive an annual SPACES Season Pass membership, which gives them free access to networking and artist professional development opportunities throughout the year.
