Creative Capital is a premier provider of risk capital in the arts. In the past year, Creative Capital has re-invigorated its grantmaking process to emphasize the importance of risk-taking: taking chances on projects that are singularly bold, innovative, genre-stretching and of this moment; ideas of scope and ambition expressed through audacious combinations of form and content; varied projects that engage or even create new technologies; and works that take traditional approaches into new territories, teaching us something new about the world and ourselves. More information on the grantees' projects can be found in the artist projects section of our website.

"With this new class of 2012 grantees, we are thrilled to support work that is highly contemporary, daring, delightful and complex—work that astonishes with the richness of its ideas," commented Ruby Lerner, Creative Capital's President & Executive Director. "Creative Capital continually aims to support the latest thinking in the field, and this year's grantees push the boundaries of visual arts, film and video." 

Creative Capital received a total of 3,247 submissions from artists in all 50 states for the 2012 grants in Visual Arts and Film/Video. We thank the nearly 100 arts professionals and artists from across the country who served as readers, evaluators and panelists to review the submissions and select the 2012 grantees. Read more about how the 2012 grants were selected here.
