    Fall ArtNight MiniGrant Opportunity

    ArtNight Pasadena, sponsored by the City of Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the Division of Cultural Affairs, is an ongoing partnership between local cultural institutions and the City of Pasadena. On October 10, 2014, 19 arts and culture institutions will open, free-of-charge for the evening to provide a variety of art, culture, and music. Free shuttles will transport the public to the different participating organizations from 6 pm to 10 pm.

    The Arts & Culture Commission is seeking individual artists and organizations of all sizes and disciplines to reflect the robust cultural life of Pasadena by participating in ArtNight. MiniGrants of $500 each are offered to smaller arts and culture organizations; arts and culture organizations without facilities; independent, non-commercial galleries; ensembles; and individual artists, to offset the cost of participating in the Fall ArtNight event. MiniGrant recipients must perform at and partner with one of the identified art or cultural venue host sites; venue will approve the MiniGrant(s) at its site. Applicants should contact venues directly to arrange. Please see the application for more details.
