Arts foun­da­tion to make grants

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Carolina Mi­randa

The Mike Kel­ley Foun­da­tion for the Arts an­nounced it will make $250,000 worth of grants to or­ga­ni­za­tions pro­duc­ing “com­pelling, in­ven­tive and chal­leng­ing projects by vis­ual artists or artists’ col­lec­tives.”

“Mike helped es­tab­lish Los An­ge­les as a re­ally vi­brant arts scene, and this is a part of that,” said Mary Clare Stevens, the foun­da­tion’s ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor. “He was very ex­plicit in the pa­per­work that he wanted to fund arts or­ga­ni­za­tions, es­pe­cially smaller ones and ones that he be­lieved were do­ing good work — work that other folks weren’t pay­ing at­ten­tion to.”

This year the foun­da­tion is look­ing to cast a wide net for not-for-profit arts groups in L.A. County. Ap­pli­cants will have un­til Aug. 5 to sub­mit a let­ter of in­quiry; the foun­da­tion then will in­vite those who qual­ify to sub­mit full pro­pos­als.
