The Propeller Fund (http://www.propellerfund.org/) is conceptualized to stimulate further growth in the arts; to encourage more varied models of art practice; to spread the activities into more diverse areas; to promote the public’s interaction with, and public recognition of such activities; and to spark ambitions beyond current formats. Initial support for the Propeller Fund program is provided by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts as part of its initiative to promote informal and independently organized visual arts activities across the United States.
