about the Showcase & Grove Artist Grants below.
Application deadline is April 30, 2020.


All Artists Can Apply

Artists of all ages can apply for a Grove Artist Grant, whether you are a filmmaker, poet, visual artist, ceramicist, writer, musician, singer/songwriter, or photographer. All grant submissions will be reviewed and grants will be awarded to 10 artists at the May 30th Cultivated Artist Showcase. (Must be present to win. This grant is best suited for artists who live in California, Arizona, Oregon & Utah.) 

10 $1,000 grants will be given.

Get Your Art Out There!

Your art must demonstrate originality in creating art for others to benefit from. In other words, you can't buy a new guitar for yourself. But if you are holding a concert, get the guitar! Large or small, your proposal must demonstrate you are creating an audience for your art. You may be a poet and want to host a house creative and let us know your detailed plans in your application.

Application Deadline - April 30, 2020

How Will People Benefit?

We want you to take this money, invest it in your art, and show it to as many people as possible. We need to see you have a plan and a brief budget for putting your art out there where people are. Host a gallery showing. Throw a house party. A backyard or neighborhood concert. Visit schools and teach art to children, serve the poor. Why is The Grove offering grants to artists?

Because artists influence everything.

Scattering Seed... Fruitful Artists

For the past seventeen years, The Grove Center for the Arts & Media has awarded over $120,000 in grants and scholarships to artists. As a small non-profit, we don't have an endowment, but we do believe in generosity. When we're generous, there's always more. When we're stingy, there's never enough. If we sow sparingly, we'll reap sparingly. Because artists influence everything...we believe a little seed can go a long way.
