The InLiquid + Blick Micro-grant is Still Open to Qualified Artist Members!

InLiquid is proud to announce year three of our partnership with Blick Art Materials to offer the InLiquid Microgrants Program, exclusively for our Artist Members. This is a special member benefit and is currently for those working on a project that will be publicly exhibited in the next 18 months (as of each application round deadline)—this can include exhibitions, public commissions, and more. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to assist artists in covering necessary material costs (as funding will be awarded in the form of Blick gift cards, redeemable in-store only). All submissions will be reviewed by an Advisory Committee consisting of artists and professionals from the region’s arts and culture community (not InLiquid staff). The committee will meet quarterly.

As a collaboration between InLiquid Art + Design, Blick Art Materials, part of the micro-grant gives each winning artist a chance to show a demo at Blick’s Center City location on Chestnut Street.  Don’t miss your to chance to demonstrate and discuss technique with other professional artists and the public of Philadelphia.

The deadline for the third quarter round of the InLiquid Microgrant program is closely approaching and the applications are here!
