WMA to host information session with Verdant Fund for artist project grants
WMA will host an information session for Verdant Fund, an expansion of the Warhol Foundation’s Regional Re-grant program, which supports creative practice born of and within Alabama. The fund’s goal is to reach a broad range of artists across all geographic areas of the state, and WMA is one of seven arts organizations throughout Alabama to host a session.
Artists and those interested in creative artistic projects can attend the session on Thursday, July 14, 2022, at the Wiregrass Museum of Art at 6:00pm in Dothan, AL in the museum’s conference center. Galleries will be open at 5:30pm for attendees to visit before the session.
Each year, the Verdant Fund awards over $60,000 in grants to Alabama artists creating community-based projects. Grants typically award $7,000 toward funding non-traditional artistic endeavors and public facing projects that would not typically receive funding elsewhere. The Verdant Fund hopes to extend what’s possible for creative practice, support risk-taking, seed new cultural production, and deepen the network among culture-bearers.

local and regional art scenes but lies beyond the reach of traditional funding sources. The
program is administered by non-profit visual art centers across the United States that work in
partnership with the Foundation to fund artists’ experimental projects and collaborative
