Why do I need to live in Milwaukee County?
Open Fund Artist Project Grants are funded by the Open Fund Regional Re-granting program with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and The Ruth Foundation for the Arts. The Open Fund is a region specific program and has partner programs across the United States.
Who will review the applications?
