Title Grants to Individuals: Visual Artists
Organization Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation
Closing Date Sunday, December 15, 2019
Location New York, NY

Individual Support Grants are available to painters, sculptors and printmakers who have been engaged in a mature phase of their art for at least 20 years and who are currently in financial need.
–Financial need is based on household income.
–Maturity is based on a high level of intellectual, technical, and creative proficiency that has been maintained over time. It is not based on an applicant’s age but rather on the development of and commitment to an artist’s work and its progress over time. We rely on the visuals included with the application to provide evidence that an artist has been producing mature work for at least 20 years.
–There is no preference given to genre, media, or subject matter, as long as the work is painting, printmaking, or sculpture, or can be directly interpreted as such.

Last year this program awarded 12 grants of $25,000 each; grant amounts are determined each year.

The Foundation’s grant programs are open to both US based and International artists. US citizenship or residency is not required.

Applications, including attachments, are all submitted online.  https://www.gottliebfoundation.org/apply-for-a-grant/
