The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2014 grants.

Ranging from $6,000 to $50,000 in four categories—articles, blogs, books and short-form writing—these grants support projects addressing both general and specialized art audiences, from scholarly studies to self-published blogs.
