The Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) has launched two new grants that will give local artists and communities the opportunity to create IN Indiana artwork and signage in highly-visible locations throughout the state.

The grants

The IDDC plans to allocate up to $500,000 total between both grants and those awarded will receive 75% of funding when granted and 25% when the project is completed.

The Public Art Activation Grant program in 2022 added over 40 murals and sculptures across the state. See those projects.

Applications are now open and the deadline to submit is Friday, March 17 at 4 p.m.
