BOMB Magazine Receives Mellon Grant

The arts and culture magazine BOMB was awarded a $138,000 grant from The Andrew. W. Mellon Foundation to support a three-year initiative that includes the ongoing digitization of The BOMB Digital Archive and its transformation into a fully indexed, searchable online database that will be made available to scholars, students, and the public at large free of charge.

BOMB’s publisher, editor-in-chief, and co-founder, Betsy Sussler, states, “We are grateful for this chance to increase our commitment to the innovative delivery of the artist’s voice, to substantial engagement with a committed audience, and to a history of creative expression.”

With additional funding of $50,500 from Mellon, BOMB will launch an initiative to secure digital permissions for content previously published in its pages.
