Museums Alaska is pleased to announce that the Art Acquisition Fund continues in 2014-16, thanks to generous support from Rasmuson Foundation. In 2016, $265,000 will be available for grants to qualified Alaska museums and culture centers for the purchase of contemporary Alaskan works of art.
The 2016 AAF Round 2 is now open. Please use the application link below. The next deadline to submit grant applications is October 15, 2016. We look forward to your application.
The updated guidelines for 2016 are linked below.
The Art Acquisition Fund not only makes possible the enrichment of the state’s museum and cultural center collections, but the funds also go directly to Alaska artists encouraging them to continue their work in Alaska. Browse supported artists on Rasmuson Foundation’s online gallery.
Applicants are encouraged to become members of Museums Alaska, if not already, though it is not required for a grant award. Join here and help us continue to develop programs that benefit the Alaska museum community and the cultural sector.
Please contact the Program Administrator if you have any questions about the application.
