10 Visual Artist Grants Just Made Available

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Open to both emerging and established visual artists, (that means writers don’t qualify, Stuart).  Ahem, there are 10 unrestricted grants for $ 2.5k open right now.

The grants are coming from the “Artwork Archive’s Art Business Accelerator” which specializes in helping artists “establish a solid business foundation for their art practice.”  So along with the $2,500 you also get a lifetime account with them and access to their art business tools and guides.  They are obviously trying to get a lot of emails and introduce artists to their platform in the process, but who cares?  Real money for artists is on the table.

The artist selection and application process is being handled by Redline Contemporary Art Center, which is a cool art center and non-profit in Denver.  And Denver by the way, is full of dope museums, galleries and artists, I went there a couple summers back and really enjoyed the art.  Anyway…tangent over.

To be eligible for the grant:

  • Visual artists 21 and older who are working intentionally to better their communities and / or address community challenges directly through their work.
  • Examples of this could include, but are not limited to involvement in community projects, education, mentoring, and public art.
  • Visual artists (including painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, installation, mixed media, and site-specific works) with a strong artistic focus in their discipline. We regret that we do not accept submissions for narrative film/video, music, performance or sound art, theatre, or dance.
  • Artists that have demonstrated high artistic quality, innovation, and creativity with a track record of participation in the arts for at least two (2) years.
  • Open to professional artists worldwide.
