This is a fund whose purpose is “…to address the dilemma faced by senior American artists of merit whose public recognition may have lessened, but who continue to be productive working artists. Essentially the Fund intents to assist living American artists of established reputation who are over the age of sixty. The Fund accepts applications from individual artists and from institutions.”
Individual artist support is available for the partial funding of exhibitions and for exhibition catalogs. Nonprofit support is available for the collection, purchase and exhibition of works by senior American artists.
Grant amounts generally range from $1,000 - $20,000. Evaluation is based upon eligibility and artistic or scholastic merit. Decisions are made by the Board of Trustees within 60 days of the established deadline. “Upon completion of the project, recipients are required to submit a full report to the Fund, detailing records and receipts of all directly related expenses.”
Two annual deadlines: October 1st and March 1st.
