This post is especially for our artist readers today, as we wanted to share NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) with you, which we’ve been using it a lot lately.
NYFA is a bit of a misnomer. While the organization is in New York, it’s really a resource for artists across the nation and around the world. If you’re looking for a job in the arts or exhibition opportunities, check out their classifieds section. Of course, a lot of opportunities are in New York, but that seems to be a symptom of the US art market in general not just NYFA, and at a quick glance today we saw jobs and opportunities in L.A., New Mexico, New Jersey, and Minnesota.
Our favorite part of NYFA is Source, the most extensive national directory of awards, services, and publications for artists. This is such a great database if you’re looking for any sort of grant, scholarship, award, or other service. There is something out there tailor made for everyone–Native American Artists, Artists specifically from Juneau, AK, Artists in Minnesota, Arts Organizations, Asian Artists, Lesbian Artists…the list goes on! It may be a recession, but if you search hard enough, we bet you can find some help out there. Happy hunting!
