Vision 2020 Grant

The Mid-South Sculpture Alliance is proud to announce a grant for BIPOC sculptors living and working in the United States. Up to three mid-career sculptors who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a person of color will be awarded up to $2,000 to help them advance their practice.

Sculpture is an expensive craft. VISION 2020 has been created to support BIPOC artists in their creative endeavors and promote their expression that may have been previously unachievable without financial support. You can contribute to this fund here.

The grant will be juried by our esteemed panel of curators and arts professionals: Dr. Kimberli Gant (the McKinnon Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Chrysler Museum of Art), Miranda Kyle (Arts & Culture Program Manager for the Atlanta BeltLine), and Nandini Makrandi Jestice (the Chief Curator at Hunter Museum of American Art).

Awards will be granted based upon the applicant's portfolio. While applicants are not required to submit information on how they might use the funds, MSA expects the recipients to dedicate the funds towards expanding their ability to create new work. Funds may not be used to support academic research or study toward an academic or professional degree. There is neither a fee nor membership requirement for application for the fellowship. However, MSA encourages all applicants to become members.

 You can find more information about membership at

Applications are due by 11:59PM EDT on October 31, 2020. Applicants will be notified by November 15, 2020.
