In seeking to strengthen the visual arts in the Dominican Republic and the wider Caribbean region, the Davidoff Art Initiative recognizes that providing opportunities for artists to develop their work and gain contacts and exposure is not enough. Cultural organizations too, have pressing needs. Many are constrained in their efforts to exhibit or promote artists because they lack physical, technological, or financial resources to do so.
Davidoff Art Grants will assist local cultural organizations and institutions in the Dominican Republic with small and medium-size awards. A limited number of grants will be provided each year to meet the needs of organizations, including museums, non-profit art spaces, art schools, art publications and websites, commercial galleries, and other non-for-profit or commercial ventures dedicated to providing opportunities and exposure for artists of the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean.
The Davidoff Art Grants seek to be responsive to organizations’ specific needs, which may vary considerably: from physical improvements to facilities, to computer hardware or software, to budgets for staff or consultants, marketing initiatives, security needs, publications, websites, or travel.
The inaugural grant of the Davidoff Art Grants was made in February 2013, to The Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design in the Dominican Republic, to defray the expense of installing a new cement floor in the school’s sculpture studio.
The Davidoff Art Initiative may invite an organization to submit a grant application. All applications will reviewed and the Davidoff Art Initiative may request additional information about the organization and its proposal.
