On the blog: Art project grants

May 7, 2014
by Anna Huntington, The Sculpture Project

Are you percolating an original art project that needs seed money to get off the ground? Apply for a Sculpture Project Arts Programming Grant.

The grants, up to $5,000, are for art projects of all kinds that connect to The Sculpture Project. Projects need a downtown Rapid City connection, special consideration is given to proposals that include partners and collaborators, and a funding match is required. The final 2014 deadline is June 1.

The application is simple (really!) and can be found here. If you have questions about whether your project fits the criteria or about how to complete the application, please don't hesitate to contact

A connection to The Sculpture Project can mean a lot of different things, and we're open to lots of possibilities!

Projects that have received funding during the grant program’s first year:

  • A Gathering of People, Wind and Water, a Native art market and cultural celebration at Main Street Square inspired by sculptor Masayuki Nagase’s themes of hope and transformation
  • Passage of Wind and Water Arts Collaborative, a cross-artistic collaboration including dance, film, poetry and music inspired by Nagase’s work
  • Passage to Schools, dual-aligned, interdisciplinary K-12 curricula that uses The Sculpture Project as a catalyst for learning
  • Graffiti installation in Art Alley inspired by Nagase’s themes of wind and water

The grants are possible through a partnership between Destination Rapid City and the Rapid City Arts Council.
