ArtsBloom is the City’s non-capital art competition funded through the Percent for the Arts program. Qualifying projects include art education, performing arts and temporary art. The goals of the program are to enrich and expand the experience of public art for all Rochesterians by reaching historically underserved residents, while increasing economic opportunities for local artists and small arts organizations in Rochester.
In this inaugural round of the ArtsBloom Project, a total of $100,000 will fund diverse arts programming and projects. Individuals or groups/organizations may submit a funding request for one of three options: $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000. See the full Request for Proposal for more information.
In order to provide the City with an opportunity to discuss the RFP and Respondents with an opportunity to ask questions and clarify the RFP, a pre-proposal conference will be held virtually on Wednesday, May 10, 2023. To ensure that all Respondents have a clear understanding of the scope and requirements of this RFP, the City will respond to all timely questions submitted via e-mail by 5:00 pm on May 15, 2023 to Heather Anderson, AICP (Project Manager, Office of City Planning) at [email protected].
