Volunteer to become an advisor

Have you ever wondered how the Arts Board decides which applications to fund? Have you ever wanted to make those decisions? Then you might be interested in serving as a volunteer advisor to the board.

The Arts Board uses a very rigorous, citizen-driven process to review grant applications, and to select artists to commission or work to purchase for the state’s permanent art collection.  Each year, approximately 250 individuals serve as volunteer advisors in the board’s ten grant programs and in the Minnesota Percent for Art in Public Places program. Advisors read proposals, discuss them in a public meeting, and assign scores for each proposal. The scores help determine which proposals will be recommended to the board for approval.

The amount of time and tasks required vary, depending on the program in which the volunteer serves. Advisors must have experience or expertise in a particular area of the arts, arts funding, or nonprofit or public administration.

If you’d like to nominate yourself or someone you know to serve as an advisor, please complete and submit our volunteer form.

Promoting Appreciation for the Role of Arts in Health and Wellness in the Twin Cities

Promoting Appreciation for the Role of Arts in Health and Wellness in the Twin Cities is a pilot study that qualitatively explores Americans' current thinking about the connection between arts and health, and their responses to communications about this topic. Conversations with a diverse cross-section of individuals in the Twin Cities provide important insights into how a conversation about the arts-health connection may play out at broader scales, and the potential of this focus to attract new engagement with and support for the arts. The pilot study was conducted as a strategic partnership among Topos, Metris Arts Consulting, and Americans for the Arts.
