CultureSource is proud to announce the recipients of our Flourish Fund grant for the 2021 cycle. Six artists were awarded $10,000 to support collaborative projects that are experimental, shared with the public, and embrace contemporary creative possibilities for the future of arts and culture.

In the spirit of embracing contemporary culture at its core and edges, grants were made to artists at various stages of their careers working on multidisciplinary projects that center the visual arts. Learn more.

Flourish Fund grants are generously funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of its Regional Regranting Program.

We’ll be sharing more information about grant recipients and their work on our Instagram (@culturesource) in the coming weeks.

Andy Warhol's legacy has inspired people worldwide to think differently, act creatively, and experiment. The Flourish Fund recipients demonstrate how artists in Southeast Michigan continue this work, through compelling, collaborative, visionary projects that imagine new creative futures for our region and its people.

About the Regional Regranting Program
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Art’s Regional Regranting Program partners with local arts organizations around the United States to make grants to artists and collectives for projects that chart new creative territory in their communities. Each partner in the network creates its own program tailored to the specific needs and artistic identity of its region. Established in 2007, the network is currently active in 32 cities and regions, supporting artists whose work falls outside the scope of traditional presenting organizations and/or funding opportunities.
Established in 1987 in accordance with Andy Warhol’s will, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts’ mission is the advancement of the visual arts. The primary focus of its grant making activity is to support the creation, presentation, and documentation of contemporary visual art, particularly work that is experimental, under-recognized, or challenging in nature.
