MARN is a Proud sponsor of the Grilled Cheese Grant

MARN is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Grilled Cheese Grant, an annual community fundraising event and emerging artist grant that provides financial support for undergraduate seniors at The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) and The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who are working towards completing their senior thesis projects in the areas of Fine Arts and/or Design. 

Due to the circumstances surrounding the global pandemic, The Sixth Annual Grilled Cheese Grant will be held virtually and each selected finalist will exhibit work at a storefront space in Riverwest. Grilled Cheese Grant patrons will be able to view the selected finalists’ work safely through gallery space windows at either Yours Truly or Gluon Gallery. The exhibition will also be virtually accessible through the GCG website. All votes and donations will be submitted electronically through a form on the GCG website.

The Grilled Cheese Grant will host virtual programming and events March 26-April 9, 2021. A virtual artist talk with GCG finalists will be held this Friday, April 2nd 6-7:30pm. Details about events will be posted on the GCG website and social media.
