All of us at Art Bridges are thinking about our partners and the challenges you’re facing regarding the coronavirus/Covid-19. We’re continuing to monitor and local and regional health authorities, and we urge you to do the same. Above all, please stay as safe and healthy as possible.

We will continue to support you and your decisions as you adjust schedules or postpone events in light of the current situation. Art Bridges is up and running and operating as usual, and we’ll let you know if that changes. Now more than ever, access to American art can play an important and unifying role as our communities face these challenges together. In the meanwhile, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

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!


We work differently than many foundations. For more information, or if you have questions not answered here, please visit our FAQs.
