$1000 Working Art Grant Purchase Awards
Working Artist Org. is a privately run charitable organization, interested exclusively in the support and promotion of great art and artists.In addition to funding artists through a monthly Purchase Award, any excess resources gained from your donations go to help artists from the local to the global community through special projects ranging from on site exposure to a vast audience – to more esoteric and personal gifts toward a selected artist’s needs.
The Working Art Grant/Purchase Award is a meager one-time purchase award intended to disperse small but vitalizing bursts of funding to support an artist’s ongoing art making process.
The Working Art Grant/Purchase Award is available to all domestic and international artists working in all media. As a stipulation for eligibility to receive the Working Art Grant/Purchase Award, we ask that each prospective recipient be willing to exchange one of their works of our later mutual agreement in return. We reimburse the artist’s shipping costs.
If you are interested in being considered for one of these awards, please send 5 digital images/files of recent available work (total mail size no larger than 2 MB please) via email. No written proposals or CV’s are required unless the artist would like to include them. Instead, please simply include in the body of your email current contact information and a link to an artist’s website if available, and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no application form.
