The PRA initiated a new grant-making effort through the Percent for Art Program, entitled the Fund for Art and Civic Engagement (FACE). This program, which is funded by contributions from private developers, is intended to facilitate innovative works of public art and community engagement.

The theme for the first year of FACE for was FACE: the Vacancy. Artists were invited to propose original and innovative concepts for temporarily activating vacant land owned by the PRA. Applicants were encouraged to consider a spectrum of robust public art and culture-based projects, especially those with an integral component of community engagement.

We also made a series of small matching grants to artists and arts and cultural organizations.

Future opportunities through the FACE program will be announced there.  There are currently no available opportunities.  If you are interested in joining the mailing list for the program please email julia.guerrero@pra.phila.gov
