Viet Receives $10,000 Investing in Artists Grant for Artistic Innovation


Viet was selected as one of the twenty-six recipients who were awarded with a grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation‘s Investing in Artists grants program. The program is designed to build the personal and creative capacity of California’s artists working in all disciplines.

The Investing in Artists grants program was established by the Center for Cultural Innovation in 2007 to enhance the working lives and strengthen the creative support system for California artists working in all disciplines. Following an initial three rounds of funding made to 54 artists in 2007 and 2008, CCI is now continuing the grants program from 2009-2011 with support from The James Irvine Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

Round VII of the Investing in Artists grants program provided support to individual visual, craft and literary artists in two categories: 1) for the acquisition of Artistic Equipment & Tools; and 2) for Artistic Innovation. Viet was awarded with a $10,000 grant for artistic innovation.
