Propeller Fund Announces 2019 Awardees

Propeller Fund proudly announces the eleven grant recipients for 2019. Selected from over one hundred candidates, these self-organized, artist-led projects continue Propeller’s mission of promoting diversity and small-scale interventions in Chicago’s visual art world. Propeller Fund offers $50,000 annually to artists producing a wide range of public culture.

Propeller Fund exists to stimulate the growth of independent cultural production throughout Chicago; to encourage more varied models of art production and presentation; to spread artistic activities into more diverse areas; to promote the public’s interaction with and recognition of such activities of our city; and to spark ambitions beyond current formats.

These awarded projects constitute a large catalyst for the creative activity and vitality of the Chicago visual art world and demonstrate the complexity and richness in the visual art community.
