Asphalt Art Initiative

The Asphalt Art Initiative grant program is designed to fund visual art interventions on roadways, pedestrian spaces, and public infrastructure in small- and medium-sized U.S. cities.

The program will assist cities looking to use art and design to improve street safety, revitalize public spaces, and engage their communities. Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to 10 small and mid-sized U.S. cities to implement their own transformative projects. The deadline to apply for a grant was December 12, 2019.

The Asphalt Art Guide

The Initiative also includes the publication of the Bloomberg Associates Asphalt Art Guide. The Guide features case studies and best practices from cities around the world, highlighting successful plaza and roadway art activations, as well as key steps and tips for developing such projects.
