The fund will consider proposals from professional artists who have secured tangible prospects for advancing their careers but lack the financial resources to capitalize on these opportunities. Examples of activities covered include (but are not limited to): mounting or casting pieces; creating marketing materials; shipping work to a gallery, museum, or private collection; and, transportation costs to attend one’s own exhibition.

The fund does not support performance, literary, or commercial work.

  • Applications accepted from September 1st through the 30th, 2015

  • Employ traditional media, NOT including photography, film, or video
  • Have had their work published and/or exhibited professionally

Our panel, which is composed of visual artists representing a wide array of backgrounds, will serve two-year terms that are staggered. Panelists may serve multiple terms.
