Milwaukee Arts Board Announces 2022 Application Cycle for Public Art Conservation Fund

 

MILWAUKEE, WI – The Milwaukee Arts Board (MAB) is announcing that the application cycle is open for its Public Art Conservation Fund. This grant program provides funding for non-profit organizations to administer public art conservation efforts throughout Milwaukee in strengthening neighborhoods and preserving the city’s rich cultural history.

“We have a responsibility to maintain and improve Milwaukee’s public art,” said Alderman Nik Kovac, Chair of the Milwaukee Arts Board. “I’m encouraging local non-profits throughout the city to apply for these funds and to join our efforts to preserve these monumental works which provide so much meaning and enjoyment to our residents.”

The Arts Board will make $10,000 in total available for public art conservation projects in Milwaukee. Individual awards up to $5,000 must be matched by the applicant. To qualify, projects must be fully accessible to the public. 

The guidelines and application are available on the Arts Board website. Applications are considered on a rolling basis as long as funds remain. At its scheduled meeting on February 8, 2022, the Board’s Public Art Subcommittee will begin reviewing applications. Applications considered at that meeting must be submitted on or before January 28, 2022. Thereafter, applications submitted at least two weeks before future regularly scheduled subcommittee meetings will be considered. Qualifying applications will be accepted until all available funds are allocated.
