Individual Artist Grants for Emerging Artists

The Emerging Artist category provides $2,500 in financial support to artists who are at a stage in their artistic development where they have some evidence of achievement but do not have a substantial record of accomplishment. The term “emerging” does not refer to an artist’s stylistic evolution but to the artist’s accomplishments and recognition. Artists at this stage are developing their talents and may have been noticed locally. Many artists remain in this category for their entire artistic lives.

Proposals must support specific project goals and are encouraged from artists in all disciplines with the following restrictions.
