Description Pro Arts Jersey City is bringing back the Art Eat-Up, a community-funded artist grant program. Proposals are being accepted until Sunday, June 23 and the event will be held on Wednesday, July 10 from 7pm to 10pm.

Pro Arts Eat-Up is a grants process that gives an artist an unrestricted financial resource to realize a visual arts proposal, whether it is for one piece or an entire body of work. The grant may provide materials, equipment or even living expenses while the artist completes the project.

Art Eat-Up is grassroots funding at its best: donations for the community dinner go directly to funding art-makers whose proposals draw the most votes from the diners. The process is purposely simple: Anyone can submit a proposal to Arts Eat-Up. Community participation in the grant selection process is the key: through this process we hope to stimulate and support experimental, critical and imaginative projects that may not be eligible for formal funding.

Art Eat-Up connects artists with artists, artists with the community, and the community with each other during Art Eat-Up dinners. It provides artists the opportunity to begin marketing their work before it is made. It creates momentum and awareness for art projects promoted during the event and possibly realized with the help of the Art-Eat-Up grant.

Proposals Deadline: June 23rd, 2013

Special Pro Arts Eat-Up Guidelines to include Eco-Arts submissions in Partnership with Sustainable JC:

SJC has chosen a series of Innovative Demonstration Project sites - the emerging Five Corners EcoVillage, a vision we share with St. Pauls Lutheran Church and The Big Sky Project Five Corners EcoVillage District, as well as one each of the City's college and K-12 campuses and a municipal park to kick off the campaign. It may be useful to consider these venues in submitting your project proposals.

Community & School Gardens, Open Spaces, Streetscapes and Private / Municipal locations are opportune for Eco Art Installations that can create sustainability awareness for the public, help remediate environmental concerns and positively impact cultural development.

Finalist proposals will share a September exhibit with the Pro Arts Curators Exhibit at the new downtown Victory Arts Projects Drawing Rooms and may be awarded additional monies via pending grant proposals and a planned Fall funding campaign for this SJC initiative.

Please go to Sustainable Jersey City (SJC) Website: for more information regarding these special proposals or contact Debra Italiano at 917-447-9839.
