Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville’s Virginia is a proud recipient of a 2 year, $70,000 grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. This grant will help support the gallery and their art programs until late 2018.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Andy Warhol Foundation through their support of our programming,” said Executive Director of the gallery, Warren Craghead. “We are grateful for their acknowledgement of the strength of our continuing exhibitions of contemporary art from around the world, and our outreach projects bringing meaningful artists and community connections.”

The gallery, which was founded in 1973, is one of the oldest non-profit contemporary art spaces in the nation. They have received support from the Andy Warhol Foundation several times over the past 14 years.

Andy Warhol dedicated his entire estate to create the Andy Warhol Foundation for “the advancement of the visual arts”. The foundation’s mission is to support up-and-coming artists and inspire innovation in contemporary art. The Second Street Gallery truly reflects the creative legacy and style of Andy Warhol.
