SoEx Announces 2010 Alternative Exposure Grant Recipients
Southern Exposure is proud to announce the recipients of grants in Round IV of our Alternative Exposure Grant Program. In this round Southern Exposure awarded $65,000 to 19 projects. With major support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Alternative Exposure offers direct support to Bay Area based unincorporated groups, burgeoning art and gathering spaces, publications, websites, collectives, events, and projects that fall outside the traditional frameworks of support. In the four years since launching Alternative Exposure, SoEx has awarded $220,000 in direct funds to 69 Bay Area projects.

Southern Exposure is committed to continuing to serve as a resource for the independent visual arts community through Alternative Exposure and our other programs. Launched in 2007, Alternative Exposure was the first in a now newly established national network of regional re-granting programs supported by the Warhol Foundation, including initiatives in Houston, TX; Chicago, IL; and Kansas City, MO, in addition to San Francisco, CA.

Generous lead support for Alternative Exposure is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional support is provided by Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund.
