Rubys Artist Project Grants are project-based funding of up to $10,000 for emerging and established Baltimore-regional artists to support the creation of innovative artistic projects. The grants support the region’s gems – the local creative community of performing, visual, media, and literary artists.

The Rubys were established in 2013 by the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, with the vision and start-up funding from the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, to provide meaningful support to individual artists as well as enrich the arts and broader community of Baltimore and the five surrounding counties.
