The Visual Arts Sea Grant Program of 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 financially assist individuals and/or collaborating artists whose works are related to themes of the marine environment. Curatorial proposals will be considered.
The grants, up to $3,000, will be awarded annually. Previous recipients of Sea Grant awards are not eligible for 5 years. Individuals enrolled as undergraduate or graduate students are not eligible. Proposals will be reviewed by a panel of RI professionals in the visual arts.
This year's application deadline is May 25, 2012.
Previous awardees include Kim Salerno and Janelle Iglesias 2008, Hannah Elise Miller, 2009, Timothy Murdock, Nathalie Miebach, and C.L Terry Gips, 2010.
