The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage (the Center) makes panel-adjudicated grants in support of the Philadelphia region’s cultural organizations and artists. In response to the impact of COVID-19 on the cultural sector, the Center is focusing its 2021 grant making on assisting arts- and history-based organizations in the Philadelphia region to recover from the pandemic’s effects through Re:imagining Recovery grants. Support of individual artists in the Philadelphia region continues through the Pew Fellowships in the Arts program.
Through project grants in Exhibitions & Public Interpretation and Performance programs, the Center’s funding has made possible thousands of performing arts events, history and visual arts exhibitions, and other public programs, while our Pew Fellowships annually provide unrestricted grants to individual artists working in all disciplines. Since its inception, the Center has awarded more than $153 million in grants.
