The Luminaria Artist Foundation Grant Program

Luminaria and San Antonio’s Artist Foundation are working together in 2020 to continue the Artist Foundation’s 12-year legacy of awarding grants to individual artists in Bexar County. The cooperative Luminaria Artist Foundation (LAF) will grant $10,000 awards for new, original work by artists in each of the following disciplines:

Literary Arts
Visual Arts
Performing Arts

The awards will recognize artistic achievement, dedication to an artistic discipline, and the potential for further professional development. Artists who receive Luminaria Artist Foundation grants are not required to participate in Luminaria’s Contemporary Arts Festival. Artists can apply for award funds from January 15 through February 28, 2020.

For more information about the regranting program and how to apply, go to the Luminaria Artist Foundation.

Luminaria will continue its tradition of celebrating the arts with its 13th annual Contemporary Arts Festival in 2020. A truly spectacular event, the festival seeks to produce experimental works from local, national, and international artists. Individual artists and artist groups of all stripes, stories, and styles are encouraged to apply to be one of the festival’s featured artists. Information about the open call will be released soon.
