ATTENTION!  Funding for Fiscal Year 2015 (7/1/14-6/30/15) has now been expended, so applicants can no longer apply for projects that will take place through 6/30/15.

Applicants who wish to apply for Fiscal Year 2016 (7/1/15-6/30/16) Art Project grants should contact the WAC at 307-777-7742 to obtain an Invitation Code to allow them to start/submit an application in our e-granting system.


Art Project grants were created for applicants who have arts-related programs that fit the criteria listed below:

  • Projects that bring arts to communities that lack access to the arts due to geographic, rural or cultural isolation, limited opportunity as participant and/or audience, economics, disability, age, confinement, or no arts venues.
  • Projects that encourage outreach to underserved populations like disadvantaged youth, people with disabilities, and older adults.
  • Projects that focus on learning in and through the arts, with participants of any age.
  • Arts festivals that present one or more of the visual, literary and/or performing arts.
  • Arts activities that feature folk and traditional arts, which express a community/group’s shared artistic heritage passed down informally through generations. See Folk Arts Program for more information..
  • Community Arts: exhibits, performances, presentations, readings, gallery talks, new work, and more
  • Professional Development: Organizations can request funding for a staff member, board member, or volunteer to participate in a conference, workshop or retreat to enhance an individual’s ability to serve the organization and arts community.
