Public Art Grants support the acquisition and installation of permanent art by Basin artists in public spaces in communities. If you have a project that will expand the impact of arts and culture in your community by installing a permanent art piece in a public space, this program may be able to help.
Who can apply
Eligible applicants include Basin Arts Councils, local governments and First Nations within the Columbia Basin Trust region.
Other non-profit organizations may be considered if they:
- represent an area not supported by a Basin Arts Council or have support from a local Arts Council demonstrated by letters of support and representation on the project committee; and
- have community and local government support demonstrated by letters of support and representation on the project committee.
Individual artists are not eligible to apply.
Deadline to Apply
The Public Art Grant intake is now open.
