The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program supports writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art through project-based grants, ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, issued directly to twenty individual authors a year. The program was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. The Arts Writers Grant Program aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.

Writers who meet the program's eligibility requirements are invited to apply in the following categories:

  • Articles
  • Blogs
  • Books
  • New and Alternative Media
  • Short-Form Writing

The Arts Writers Grant Program honors and encourages writing about art

  • that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise;
  • that is keenly engaged with the present but is also appreciates the historical;
  • that is neither afraid to take a stand nor content to deliver authoritative pronouncements, but serves rather to pose questions and generate new possibilities for thinking about, seeing, and making art;
  • that is sensitive to both the importance and difficulty of situating aesthetic objects within their broader social and political contexts;
  • that does not dilute or sidestep complex ideas but renders accessible their meaning and value;
  • that creatively challenges the limits of existing conventions without valorizing novelty as an end in itself.
