The grantLOVE project uses art as a tool to build a more equitable and accessible world.
grantLOVE is an art project started by Los Angeles-based artist Alexandra Grant in 2008 to help raise awareness and funds for arts nonprofits and community organizations through the gift and sale of her LOVE artwork. Alexandra’s LOVE symbol originated from a sculpture she exhibited in 2008 at Honor Fraser gallery, A Love That Should Have Lasted. She trademarked the LOVE symbol in 2012.
grantLOVE creates community and supports nonprofits, artists, and artist projects in two ways:
- through the creation and donation of LOVE artworks and merchandise directly to nonprofits, fundraising auctions, and artists’ organizations and projects
- through the direct sales of LOVE artworks and merchandise on grantLOVE.com, which pays for materials and production costs and supports collaborating artists directly through project funding, artist stipends and the purchase of artworks for the permanent collection of museums.
Through fiscal sponsorship with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), grantLOVE’s new fund will be able to grow to impact more existing non-profits. We are grateful to all our supporters!
