Applicants sought for new BW grant


Each year following our cover art auction, BW has a chunk of cash to do away with, and since this year's proceeds topped out at more than $15,000, we have a serious amount of extra loot on our hands. We're asking local artists what they can do with our money.

Local arts organizations are eligible for our newly created private grant, which will be awarded to one or more organization on the basis of an application. To be considered, answer each of the following questions as completely, efficiently and persuasively as possible, submit your proposal to the Boise Weekly offices at 523 Broad St. by Friday, Jan. 4 at 5 p.m. and keep your fingers crossed. Grant recipients will be chosen by Jan. 31.

Without further ado, the questions: How does your organization support local visual artists? Will this grant fund a new project or an existing project? What is the budget for the project? How will the grant be used? Describe the location and accessibility of the project. How does this project benefit the community and support the mission of Boise Weekly's Cover Auction?
