SITE Santa Fe is pleased to announce the return of SPREAD, SITE’s long-running special event designed to generate community-driven financial support to fund New Mexico artists.
SITE invites New Mexico-based artists and creative thinkers, working in all disciplines and at any stage in their career to apply. For our fifth SPREAD cycle, we invite studio artists currently working in New Mexico to apply. Applications this cycle will not be project-based, but will focus on artistic merit and innovation. Past SPREAD applicants have always included a number of artists with a studio-based practice, and this year we would like to acknowledge that rich community.
Small Grants for Big Ideas: After a short hiatus, SPREAD returns to SITE Santa Fe with a fully virtual iteration this spring. A signature SITE event since 2011, SPREAD is a unique initiative that provides visibility, career development support, and funding for New Mexico-based artists. Over the last nine years, SITE’s six SPREAD events have raised over $40,000 in direct support for artists. The deadline for Artists to Apply to SPREAD 7.0 is December 4, 2020.
