The InLiquid/Blick Microgrant

The InLiquid/Blick Microgrant

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, February 28, 2019

InLiquid’s partnership with Blick Art Materials offers again the InLiquid Microgrants Program! We now have extended this opportunity to all active artists in the Philadelphia area currently working on a project that will be publicly exhibited in the next 18 months–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 requirements for this program are as follows:

  • Micro-Grants will be awarded in the form of gift cards, redeemable in-store only at the downtown Philadelphia Blick location. The amount awarded will be based on how the Advisory Committee decides to split the funds.
  • Artist must complete and exhibit the proposed project within 18 months of the applicable quarterly deadline, preferably in the Philadelphia region.
    The Micro-Grant is not meant to fully fund a project but instead assist in covering material costs.
  • Applications must be submitted online through the link provided. Please be prepared to include your materials list and budget.

Grant winners will also be automatically entered for a chance to participate in an in-store demonstration series event at the downtown Philadelphia Blick. Demonstration materials needed will be provided by Blick. If selected, artists will be contacted directly with details.
