2011 PEI awards to organizations big and small

sponsored

Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative just announced their 2011 grantees. Nice to see the grants to alternative spaces and organizations–Marginal Utility, Megawords, Vox Populi, Asian Arts Initiative, Slought (in addition to awards to some of our favorite local big guys — ICA, PMA, the Fab Workshop and Philagrafika)!  $874,900 were handed out to nine recipients — five for exhibitions and four for planning.  Since 1997, PEI has awarded 112 grants for a total of $11 million to bring excellent visual arts programming to the area — and to help foster excellent local programming. Here’s a link to the press release for full information about Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative.    Links below go to PEI’s project page for each recipient — check out the projects, some are pretty neat.  Congratulations, all!
