Do you love art and photography? Do you have an idea to spread the love of art to the community? If the answer’s yes, then the Crusade Engagement Grant might be worth looking into.
In September we announced the 2014 winner of the $10,000 Crusade Engagement Grant. The selection committee chose Matthew Conboy’s idea to create newborn collectors in Pittsburgh for its “off the charts creativity”. The grant funds the distribution of photographs from local photographers to every baby born in specific Pittsburgh-area hospitals in 2015. The program, now called Start With Art, is in full swing, with January baby’s receiving this photograph by Aaron Blum.
Crusade for Art is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to engage new communities with art by developing a network of inspired new arts advocates and to support artists with strategies to connect to those advocates and turn them into collectors.
The application process will begin in March, so there’s still time for planning. If you or someone you know has a great idea that would qualify, this equates to a very real opportunity.
