The Pollock-Krasner Foundation provides financial assistance to individual visual artists of established ability on an ongoing basis throughout the year. The Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial need, whether professional, personal or both. Open to individuals who have been professional artists over a significant period of time and who work in any of the following media: painting, sculpture, and works on paper, including printmaking. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will consider need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate expenditures relating to his or her professional work and personal living, including medical expenses.
The size and length of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. For complete details, including application guidelines, visit http://www.pkf.org/.
