Supporting Innovative Programming

Once approved for an Art Bridges Exhibition Project, institutions can apply separately for a Programming and Evaluation Project. In doing so, organizations can think big and take chances on new ideas - with the support of the Art Bridges team.

Programming and Evaluation Projects are designed to support innovative programming and meaningful evaluation that’s associated with an Art Bridges Exhibition Project.


Who can apply?

Institutions that are partners on an Art Bridges Exhibition Project.


Eligible Costs

Applicants are eligible for up to $10,000. Please note:

  • We support the direct costs associated with delivering programs (i.e. supplies, materials, honoraria).
  • We support programs that are innovative and new for your institution, and those that help you reach a new audience.
  • Art Bridges does not typically fund 100% of the programming costs; we expect the museum to pay some of the costs as well.


How do I apply?

Every Art Bridges partnership begins with an Exhibition Project. Start there!
