Join us for a special livestream event showcasing the artists of SPREAD 7.0, remarks by the SPREAD 6.0 winner Paula Castillo, and the announcement of our winner.

SPREAD is a long-running SITE Santa Fe initiative that provides visibility, career development support, and funding for New Mexico-based artists. Beginning with an open application process, an esteemed jury selects six finalists to present their projects to the public. Then each finalist works closely with curators to develop a short pitch and presentation introducing their work and making a case for funding.

The crowdfunding nature of SPREAD means that in order to vote each person must make a donation. Cast your vote with a donation of $5 or more for your favorite project. 100% of the donations go to funding the micro-grant, so more votes means more money for local artists!


In the past, these six finalist artists would present their proposals at a 300 person dinner with event attendees voting for their favorite project. All money donated at this pay-what-you-wish dinner was then awarded to the finalist who received the most votes to further advance their practice. This year, in response to COVID safety and in an effort to present our finalists to a broader audience, SPREAD has gone virtual! Learn more here.

*To donate to the micro-grant, purchase the amount of “votes” equaling the amount of money you’d like to contribute. If you want to donate $25 for example, enter the number 5 into the Purchase field. 5 votes at $5 each equals a $25 donation to the micro-grant.
