Warhol Foundation grants Contemporary Austin, Houston’s Project Row Houses each $100,000


The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has announced the recipients of its Fall 2022 grants, and among them are the Contemporary Austin and Houston’s Project Row Houses.

Each organization will receive $100,000. The Menil Collection in Houston was also awarded $100,000 for support of the exhibition “Ruth Asawa: Drawings.”

In total the Warhol Foundation distribute more than $4 million to 48 organizations.

“The Foundation’s grant program recognizes the vital role played by artist-centered organizations, community-oriented spaces, and major museums to amplify the voices and visions of artists,” states Joel Wachs, President, “In addition to championing experimental artistic practices, they provide crucial platforms from which artists can contribute to important cultural dialogues.”

The Contemporary Austin will use the grant to present “The Land” an artist-led exploration of the connection between urban development, environmental degradation, labor and resource extraction, and human displacement.

A pioneer in the field of socially engaged artmaking, Project Row Houses in Houston will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a series of programs and installations that highlight the work of its founders; it will also continue developing its Archive Project which records the organization’s history and codifies its methodologies.
