George Bellows Fund
Since 2015, the George Bellows Fund (previously known as the George Bellows Grant Program) has provided funding in support of individual artists, artistic collaborations, and community-based organizations investing in the fundamental value of arts and culture in the Franklinton community. Activities eligible for grant consideration include public art projects, community engagement activities through the arts, and arts educational programs.
Individuals or organizations applying for project support must provide a detailed, site-specific plan that demonstrates impact within the Franklinton community and encompasses the mission of The George Bellows Grant Program.
