The Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) today announced twenty?six artists who received funding in the fifth round of funding under its Investing in Artists grants program, which is designed to build the personal and creative capacity of California’s artists working in all disciplines. Kim Stringfellow received an Investing in Artists grant in the Round V Artistic Equipment and Tools category.

The Investing in Artists grants program was established by the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) in 2007 to enhance the working lives and strengthen the creative support system for California artists working in all disciplines. Following three initial rounds of funding made to 54 artists in 2007 and 2008, CCI was able to expand the program which will now make $1 million in new grants to artists from 2009-2011, supported by The James Irvine Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

Round V of the Investing in Artists grants program specifically provided support to working artists in the Visual Arts, Craft and Literary Arts in two categories: 1) for the acquisition of Artistic Equipment & Tools; and 2) for Artistic Innovation. New grant awards to California artists for Round V of the Investing in Artists grants program totaled $200,000.
