As part of an ongoing effort to support a wide variety of artists and advocate for racial equality in the art scene, the Pittsburgh Foundation created Exposure: An Artists Program.

This year, around $ 395,000 will be allocated. Exposure supports artists who work in all media, preferring those who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and artists who work individually or in collectives at the interface between art and social justice.

The program also provides funding to artists who have never received grants before, and includes three co-grants that refer artists to established arts organizations to provide recommendations on how to tackle inequality.

Applicants must attend a virtual briefing on Tuesday, July 20th or Thursday, August 12th. Funding decisions will be made by November 30th.
