Rocket Grants Projects

Rocket Grants award up to $6,000 to individuals and groups of artists for high quality, innovative and public-oriented artwork that happens outside of typical galleries, museums and arts districts. Artists are encouraged to address the community at large, to strengthen the arts community, or to choose a smaller, targeted audience. Rocket Grants also support proposals by artists or groups who are interested in expanding studio practice in new ways, and developing new audiences.

This is the fifth year of the awards, in which a total of $54,000 was distributed to artists living within an 80-mile radius of metropolitan Kansas City. The Rocket Grants program has recently been guaranteed at least another two-year cycle of funding by the Warhol Foundation.
