CAAP Grant
I'm very pleased to announce that I received a 2011 CAAP grant.  I applied for the grant in late January and found out in May that I had been awarded the grant.  I'll be using the grant money to purchase supplies for the framing of my Western Avenue Series paintings.  It's a great small grant for Chicago-based artists.

From the City of Chicago website, "The Community Arts Assistance Program (CAAP) was created in 1987 through funding provided by the Illinois Arts Council Access Program. The goals of CAAP are to discover, nurture and expand Chicago’s multi-ethnic artists and nonprofit arts organizations; and to foster new and emerging individual artists and arts groups by providing grants for professional, artistic, and organizational development to those who have had limited access to funding in both public and private grants programs."

What are some other small arts grants?
