The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has taken notice of the Duke City’s emerging arts community.

The foundation sought out 516 Arts to be part of the Regional Regranting Program, which is now called the Fulcrum Fund.

The fund will provide grants of $2,000 to $5,000 totalling $50,000 in the first year.

“The funds are set more like seed money,” said Suzanne Sbarge, executive director of 516 Arts. “There are many projects that need a little money to get things on track.”

516 ARTS launched the program in March with a call for proposals, from which the guest jurors have selected 11 proposals to receive a total of $50,000 from the 89 proposals that were submitted.

Roberto Espinosa's "She/Rider" was awarded money from the Fulcrum Fund.

Applicants were from an 80-mile radius around Albuquerque, including Santa Fe, Jemez, Torreon, Los Lunas, Madrid, Ribera, Glorieta and Los Ranchos.

Those selected are:

– Russell Bauer of Albuquerque for The Edible Carnival;

– Sheri Crider of Albuquerque for Launch Sculpture Residency at The Sanitary Tortilla Factory;

– Ginger Dunhill of Glorieta for Broken Boxes Podcast;

– Bradford Erickson of Albuquerque for The Small Engine Gallery;

– Roberto Espinosa of Albuquerque for She/Rider;

– Jane Gordon of Albuquerque for What Becomes;

– Aryon Hopkins of Albuquerque for Dry Mtn;

– Candice Hopkins of Albuquerque for Off Lomas;

– Marya Jones of Albuquerque for ABQ Zine Fest;

– Billy Joe Miller of Albuquerque for Loie Fuller-inspired performance/installations; and

– Daisy Quezada of Santa Fe for Present Cartographers.

Sbarge says the funds are available to foster the development and presentation of artist-led projects and programs that are direct, accessible and open to the public.

Funded activities may include a new exhibition or exhibition series, the ongoing work of an arts venue or collective, a public art project, a one-time event or performance, publications directly related to the visual arts, an online project, an artist residency, a series of film screenings and more.

The jurors were Romi Crawford, Associate Professor in Visual and Critical Studies and Liberal Arts at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Al Miner, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; and Joey Reye, Curator of Engagement & Dialogue at Movimento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana in San Jose, Calif.
