NYC PARKS DEPARTMENT ARSENAL GALLERY, US | DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 23
NYC Parks’ Ebony Society invites you to submit your work for the exhibition Migration in the Arsenal Gallery in celebration of Black History Month. In the midst of tremendous upheaval—two world wars and the Great Depression—a vast movement of people, some 6 million African American descendants of the Antebellum South, fled the racial segregation and discrimination of Jim Crow laws for northern and western U.S. cities. The “Great Migration,” as it is commonly termed, caused a seismic societal demographic shift and left an indelible mark on the urbanization of America. NYC Parks’ Ebony Society asks artists to share their interpretations of this historical epoch and its impact. Exhibition dates: January 15 – February 24, 2015. All media are considered, but please note that the gallery has a very limited capacity for three- dimensional work. Artwork may only be hung from moldings by use of monofilament and hooks.

A BLADE OF GRASS FELLOWSHIPS, US | DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 24
We provide resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. We evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue. We value process over product: relationship building and problem solving are key goals. We provide funding with minimal restriction, and budget line items may include things like living expenses that are not direct project expenses. We fund artists both locally and nationally. Four of the eight fellowships are earmarked for artists working in New York City, and four are open to all applicants, regardless of geographic location.

O’GRADY GRANT, US | DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 30
The Foundation’s primary focus is on providing seed funds for projects in playwriting and the visual arts. A secondary focus is on providing early support for filmmakers. Recognizing the difficulty artists and smaller arts organizations face in finding first or “start-up” funds to produce or exhibit new work, the Foundation actively seeks to respond to this essential need. Grants will normally be restricted to organizations within the five boroughs of New York City. Capital grants will be rare and generally limited to vital equipment and resources necessary for the function of programs. Theater companies and exhibition/performance spaces with a track record of at least 10 years presenting or producing work in New York City may apply. Independent theater artists, visual artists, and filmmakers with at least five years of documented professional work and whose work will be developed, produced or presented at established institutions may apply with the fiscal sponsorship of these or other established 501(c)(3) organizations.
