These grants, of up to $10,000, are awarded to architects, landscape architects, graphic designers, fashion designers, industrial designers, and interior designers to “creatively explore or research an issue or problem in the design, planning, and/or historic preservation fields that advances the field and contributes to the public’s understanding of the built environment.”
NYSCA seeks projects that are innovative in nature and emphasize the artistry of design excellence. Projects may lead to the creation of design prototypes, explore new technology that impacts design, research a topic in design or architectural history, or engage in critical or theoretical analyses.
Storefront for Art and Architecture will sponsor up to 20 projects for the 2018 calendar year. Priority will be given to applications that align with Storefront’s organizational mission to advance innovative and critical positions that go beyond disciplinary and ideological boundaries.
Initial proposals: February 20th
Final applications: March 10th
