The Grilled Cheese Grant (GCG) is an annual community fundraising event and emerging artist grant that provides financial support for undergraduate seniors at The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) and The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) who are working towards completing their senior exhibition projects in the areas of Fine Arts and/or Design. The Grilled Cheese Grant was created in 2016 as a secondary platform for graduating seniors to receive financial support for their projects outside of their institution.

At the Grilled Cheese Grant, attendees donate $5 or more to receive a grilled cheese sandwich made with cheese and bread provided by local community organizations. In addition to grilled cheese, all attendees also receive a ballot to cast their vote for one of five selected finalists, chosen through an application process by a jury of creative professionals.

Each selected finalist exhibits work at MARN ART + CULTURE HUB for the duration of the Seventh Annual Grilled Cheese Grant, March 26-April 3, 2022. Voting and donations for the Seventh Annual Grilled Cheese Grant will be open online March 26-April 3, 2022.

Selected 2022 finalists Eduardo Zavala (MIAD), Sha’Tuon Simpson (MIAD), Lilly Luft (UWM), Olivia Lorber (MIAD), and Ava Hager (UWM) exhibit artwork that exemplify individual visions and explore concepts like queerness, female representation, familial dynamics, and storytelling.
