GRANT GUIDELINES


PURPOSE

The Foundation provides financial resources for visual artists to create new work, acquire supplies, rent studio space, prepare for exhibitions, attend a residency and offset living expenses.

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. There are no deadlines. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will review expenditures relating to an artist’s professional work and personal expenses and amounts range up to $30,000. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in professional artistic venues, such as gallery and museum spaces.

GRANT RESTRICTIONS

The Foundation does not accept applications from commercial artists, graphic artists, video artists, performance artists, filmmakers, crafts-makers, or any artist whose work primarily falls into these categories. The Foundation does not have an open photography grant program. The Foundation does not make grants to students or fund academic study. The Foundation does not make grants to pay for past debts, legal fees or personal travel.

SELECTION PROCESS

The Officers and Directors are advised in the selection process by a Committee of Selection comprised of recognized specialists in the fields of the Foundation’s concern. Artists are required to submit a cover letter, an application, and images of current work. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. All completed applications will be promptly acknowledged and considered. If further information is required after the completed application has been received, the artist will be contacted directly by the staff. Further information including financial data may be requested at any time during the review process. The application process can take from nine months to a year.

REAPPLICATION PROCESS

Applicants may reapply to the Foundation. All reapplicants must send images of work not previously submitted. Grantees who reapply must wait 12 months from the end of their grant period. Reapplicants who were previously declined must wait at least 12 months from the date of their application letter to reapply.

FOUNDATION GOVERNANCE
