Gallery Window: BIPOC Grant Application / Funding
September 1, 2022
Organization Name: Shift Gallery
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
The member artists of Shift Gallery recognize that art is a creative pursuit limited only by one’s imagination. We seek to attract a diverse group of artists from different backgrounds. As a collective, we are dedicated to showcasing the art of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists in the Seattle area. To that end, we offer a Diversity Grant for a promising BIPOC artist who will have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in the Shift Gallery window for one month during the 2023 calendar year. The grant is for $500 and is to be used by the BIPOC artist for advancing their art practice through the window display. The artist may either create a new project, advance an existing project, or feature a recently completed project finished within the last 12 months. In addition, the artist may opt to host an artist talk on the project for a Saturday during the month that their artwork is on exhibit in the Shift Gallery window. And further, the successful applicant will have the opportunity for mentorship with a member artist.
