2024 Collectors’ Night Gala
Collectors’ Night 2024 will take place on Saturday, May 4th in downtown Washington, DC, and we can’t wait! Collectors’ Night is not only an opportunity to celebrate with our community, but also provides essential support for the powerful, artist-driven contemporary art programs that WPA produces right here in DC.
NOW OPEN: Submit to Collectors’ Night Benefit Auction
Collectors’ Night raises money for WPA’s artist-organized projects, residencies, and publications. Taking place each spring, this annual benefit sale includes more than one hundred artworks by artists living throughout the United States. Proceeds from the sale are split between the artists and WPA.
Deadline: Monday, January 29, 2024
Our annual call for one-off events in and around DC
Submission portal opens in the fall
Wherewithal Grants are a funding source for artists in the DC-area. Generously funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of its Regional Regranting Program and managed by WPA, these grants are intended to support a wide range of experimental and multidisciplinary practices, particularly those that emphasize collaboration and discourse.
The application portal opens annually in the fall
WPA maintains a robust publishing platform, producing unique publications in collaboration with resident artists.
Each publication highlights discoveries that emerge from select project residencies, symposia, et al. and provides context for further research and experimentation. Through our publications, WPA projects reach a wider audience and manifest potential for future iterations of projects beyond DC.
Recent titles include:
