The Rhode Island Sea Grant: Visual Arts, 2010

The Visual Arts Program of Sea Grant Rhode Island was established in 1988 to encourage New England professional visual artists to address the issue of the environment of the ocean and its coastal communities. Grants are intended to assist individual and collaborating artists whose works are related to themes of the marine environment. Curatorial proposals will be considered. The grants, up to $3,000, are awarded annually.

Applicants must submit:
  • A maximum of 10 digital images of recent work
  • Digital entries should be saved in RGB (not CMYK) color Image Mode, in JPEG file format, and be readable by Macintosh platforms.
  • They recommend an image size- in Pixel Dimensions- of approximately 1024 Pixels on the longest side (in width or height).
  • If possible save the file name of each image as 'artists initials_image number_brief title.jpg': (ex: VLM_1_crustacean.jpg, VLM_2_giantsquid.jpg, etc.).
  • Do not send PowerPoint presentations or automated slide presentations.
  • Send the images on one CD (no work on DVD)
  • Include a list of your images, identify each work with: your name, title, date, medium, dimensions, and file name of image.
  • Digital format is preferred- 35mm slides may be accepted (one format per entry, do not combine 35mm slides and digital entries.)
Previous recipients of Sea Grant awards are not eligible for five 
years. Individuals enrolled as undergraduate or graduate students are not eligible. Proposals will be review by a panel of RI professionals in the visual arts. Awards winners will be notified by September, 2010. A written report of the results of creative activities supported by Sea Grant, including appropriate documentation, is required at the conclusion of the project.
