Tempe’s Maryanne Corder Neighborhood Grant program supports efforts to improve and enhance community spaces and cultivates opportunities for neighbors to commission artwork and other improvements. The art sites are inventive and sometimes unexpected. An irrigation standpipe serves as a backdrop for historical dialog, and an entry wall is now a canvas for a metalworker. The Maryanne Corder Neighborhood Grant program is funded and run by the Neighborhood Services Division and supported by the Public Art program.

If you are interested in bringing art to your neighborhood, see the 2018 Pre-Qualified Public Artists List, which will introduce you to public artists who have been pre-approved to work on City of Tempe projects. This publication serves as a resource for those interested in pursuing a grant application as well as for those interested in locating an artist for other projects.
