Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art (Temple University) has announced the creation of The Velocity Fund, an initiative that will directly support visual artists living in the city of Philadelphia with grants of up to $5,000.
Established with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Velocity Fund is one of 12 Regional Re-granting Programs launched by the foundation to fund “under-the-radar artistic activity” by partnering with leading cultural institutions in cities across the nation where the level of self-organized artistic activity is the highest. The Velocity Fund is the first Warhol Foundation-supported regional re-granting program in Pennsylvania, and only the second on the East Coast between Maine and Florida.

One of Tyler’s faculty has been included in one of the newest collections of artwork, an incredible honor that speaks to his skill and finesse as an artist. Keith Morrison is a man of many talents with a history as interesting as his artwork. His recent inclusion in the Driskoll Center of the newly constructed African American Art Museum in Washington DC is nothing short of inspiring. Morrison describes his practice as that of a “A storyteller. A painter of poetic myths. An artist who uses the past as metaphor for the present.”
