About Propeller Fund

Launched in 2010, Propeller Fund is a grant administered jointly by Gallery 400 and threewalls, and funded through the generosity of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Propeller Fund provides money directly to visual artists and groups living and working in Cook County, Illinois.

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 activity into more diverse areas of our city; to promote the public’s interaction with and public recognition of such activities; and to spark ambitions beyond current formats.

Propeller Fund awards $50,000 per year to artists and groups for collaborative, public-oriented projects that are independent and self-organized. Monetary awards—in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $6,000 are disbursed in direct funds to projects. Applicants are encouraged to request the amount that is needed to accomplish their project, up to $6,000.
