ArtsAccelerator

ArtsAccelerator is an incentive grant for visual artists who are at a critical juncture in their career.  Annually, ArtsAccelerator provides five grants of $5,000 each to visual artists from the Shelby County community to enhance the artist’s overall work or career. The grant will support visual artists working in any media. 

By supporting individual artists we are able to provide real and accessible support for new work, signal to visual artists that Memphis values their contributions to our region, attract and retain a vibrant creative class in Memphis and contribute to the visibility of our artistic community as a whole, both regionally and nationally.
