Selected works will be documented, promoted, and included in the Montpelier Art Walk and other city-wide arts events.


Public Art Installation Grants
The Montpelier Public Art Commission is eager to award micro-grants (up to $1500) to Vermont- based visual artists or artist teams for temporary art installations (0 to 5 years) throughout the City of Montpelier. The commission is open to awarding grants for a wide range of proposals with varying media, styles, and installation time periods, however, successful submissions must be engaging for the public and have the effect of bringing people together and inspiring
hope. Selected works will be documented, promoted, and included in the Montpelier Art Walk and other city-wide arts events.
