Do you have a project you want funded? We’ve received several emails about artist grants (now that the internet and power are back up and we can receive emails!). Check out some of these and get some money for your art!
Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Awards–Applications due July 27 for those working in Visual Arts in Canvas or Works on Paper. Award amounts are $1,000, $3,000, and $6,000. These awards are for MD artists age 18 and over. If you work in these media, make the effort to apply, as the media allowed rotates each grant cycle. Details can be seen at the link above.
Franz and Virginia Bader Fund – This award is granted to artists age 40 and over working within a 150 mile radius of Washington, DC. Grants may be used for any purposes relating to the recipients’ work as artists. We suggest applying to this grant to help with an upcoming show, body of work, or website development.
Kickstarter–This isn’t a grant program per se, but if you haven’t heard of it, check it out. It’s a great way to get a project started. For example, one of our NSW accepted artists, Scott Barnes, is raising money to print the full edition of his Grand Canyon Suite (from which his NSW print is part). Check it out, donate, and set up your own project!
