Artists invite us to dig deeper, shift our perspectives and experience our world in new ways. With their creative approaches to investigation, problem solving and social engagement, artists make vital contributions to the civic wellbeing, innovative capacity and cultural life of Arizona’s diverse communities. Through grants and programs, the Arizona Commission on the Arts partners with Arizona artists, nurturing their creative and professional development while leveraging their knowledge and talents in service to Arizonans.

Artist Research and Development Grants are designed to support the advancement of artistic research, aid in the development of artistic work and recognize the contributions individual artists make to Arizona’s communities.
