COMMUNITY ARTS GRANTS

The Orange County Arts Council 2021-22 Community Arts Grants (the “Community Arts Grants”) are designed to encourage the growth of new arts and culture opportunities in Orange County. The Community Arts Grants will be administered by the Orange County Arts Council (the “Arts Council”) and funded through individual donations made to the Arts Council from donors and sponsors, including a generous gift from the Wesley-Krueger Family Foundation. Priority will be given to projects that focus on community engagement.

SACHS VISUAL PUBLIC ART GRANTS

This one time grant encourages the creation of visual public art works. Projects must have specific plans to be presented in public spaces in Orange County. Individual artists are encouraged to apply. Unlike the Community Arts Grants, these grants are eligible for applicants to apply to cover their own artist fees. This grant prioritizes artist-created installations.
