The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has named the recipients of its Fall 2018 grants. In this round of awards, $3.65 million was given to 42 nonprofit arts organizations for exhibitions, publications, and visual arts programming. The recipients were chosen from a an open submission group of 273 organizations, with grants ranging from $44,000 to $120,000.

The awardees span 16 U.S. states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. There is one international recipient: Ashkal Alwan, whose Home Works Forum project assembles a global pool of artists, curators, and scholars at its headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon.

Among the grantees in this round are Dirty Looks, the Los Angeles–based platform for queer film, video, and performance, and Arts Nova Workshop in Philadelphia, who will stage a show focused on the legendary free jazz drummer Milford Graves. View the list in full below.
