The Visual Arts Touring Quick Turnaround Grant program (VAT)



VAT Grant monies is available contingent upon NEA funds allocation and availability.



The VAT Grant is a exhibition project grant for organizations who present and tour visual art exhibition. This is not a grant for individual artists. These grant applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Grants will be awarded, provided the proposed project is of high artistic merit and meets the requirements outlined in the VAT grant guidelines. Funds will be available until the remaining VAT funds have been awarded. The Quick Turnaround Grants requirements are the same as the standard VAT grant guidelines. Please review the VAT grant guidelines before applying.


VAT grantees with an existing open VAT contract cannot apply until that contract is closed. If you have questions about your proposed project’s eligibility and fit, please e-mail Seyan Lucero at seyan.lucero@westaf.org or call her at 303-629-1166.


Exhibitions supported with VAT Quick Turnaround Grant awards must take place between October 1, 2014, and December 31, 2016. The project is considered complete when the originating institution has opened the exhibition at the second touring venue. Opening dates for both venues must occur between October 1, 2014 and December 30, 2016.


VAT is a competitive grant program. Using National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) funding, WESTAF will allocate matching grants of up to $50,000 each to visual arts organizations to support tours of visual art exhibitions of important regional artists, or exhibitions of quality that reflect a significant theme found in WESTAF’s 13-state region.
