OCI is thrilled to offer a $5,000 Artist Grant to artists living within 100 miles of Omaha! They seek applications for exciting, accessible, and innovative public art projects. Artists will receive $5,000, administrative support from OCI, and one year to complete the proposed project.
Eligibility: Any artist or collaboration of artists maintaining a residence within 100 miles of Omaha. All artistic media are welcome, but there must be an element of the project that is open to the public, can be viewed by the public, or is accessible to the public.
Deadlines: Applications open from Friday, March 17th at 9am through Friday, April 14th at 5pm.
A panel of local arts professionals and community members will review the applications and select the award winner by mid-May 2017.
If selected, artists must complete a contract with OCI. Artists will receive half of the grant upon selection and are required to account for all funds spent by April 15, 2018, in a final report. Artists must provide at the time of contract execution a W9 and completed and signed contract document.
