The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is a meager one-time art award intended to disperse small but vitalizing bursts of funding to support an artist's ongoing art making process.
The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is available to all domestic and international artists working in all media including traditional visual arts, painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, video, new media, and performance. We regret that we do not accept submissions for dance.
As a stipulation of eligiblity to receive our award, we ask that each potential recipient be willing to exchange one of their works of equal or lesser value of our later mutual agreement, if selected as our winner, in return for our award. We pay the artist's shipping costs.
If you are interested in being considered for our award, please send us either 5 digital images/files of recent work, (total mail size no larger than 2 MB please), or web links to video/multimedia, via email. No written proposals or CV's are required unless the artist would like to include them. Instead, please simply include in the body of your email current contact information, and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no application form.
