The Art For Justice Fund Announces Fall 2018 Grant Recipients

Today, the Art for Justice Fund announced its cohort of 32 fall 2018 grantees that share a common goal of reforming and shifting the narrative around America’s criminal justice system through the transformational power of art.
The Art for Justice Fund is a five-year initiative created by Agnes Gund in partnership with Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and the Ford Foundation. The Fund is dedicated to combating the injustices of mass incarceration through the collective action of artists, advocates, and philanthropists.

Grantees range from the Campaign for Fair Sentencing for Youth — a new network working to eliminate the sentencing of young people to die in prison — to Mural Arts — a leader in innovative public art projects based in Philadelphia that will launch the “Art for Justice Hub” and The New York Women’s Foundation, which is working to dismantle mass incarceration in NYC by investing in innovative and sustainable strategies for women, families and community.
