Y’all, we are thrilled to announce that BURNAWAY has been awarded a second grant from the prestigious Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in New York. The $35,000 grant, given over two years, is in support of BURNAWAY’s editorial coverage of the American South as a cultural region, reflecting its geographic, demographic, and artistic diversity. Our first grant, for $50,000 over two years was given in 2015.
We’re honored that the foundation has recognized the important role we play in supporting art and artists in the South, and connecting artists, arts venues, and audiences in the South and beyond. In addition to our online magazine, we offer such vital resources as our monthly Call for Artists, our weekly calendar the To Do List, and artist-centered programs like our Art Writers Mentorship Program and Artist Statement Writing Workshops, which help artists better articulate their practice when applying for grants, residencies, grad school, or competitions.
BURNAWAY wouldn’t be possible without the support of such generous funders as the Warhol Foundation and individual readers like you. Become a sustainer today!
