Rocket Grants

Arts Granting Program in the Kansas City area

Rocket Grants award up to $6,000 to individuals and groups of artists for high quality, innovative and public-oriented artwork that happens outside of typical galleries, museums and arts districts. Artists are encouraged to address the community at large, to strengthen the arts community, or to choose a smaller, targeted audience. Rocket Grants also support proposals by artists or groups who are interested in expanding studio practice in new ways, and developing new audiences.

This is the fifth year for the awards, in which a total of $54,000 will be distributed to artists living within an 80-mile radius of metropolitan Kansas City. Completed and in-progress projects from the 2010 through 2013 funding cycles can be seen at rocketgrants.wordpress.com. The program is funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and is implemented by a partnership between the Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, and the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, Kansas.
