Here is yet ANOTHER grant program available for the individual artist!
For all of the 26 grant reipients, the grants will also facilitate the creation of their finished artwork.
So far this year, this organization has awarded more than $100,000 to artists around the state. Announced earlier this year, this year's grants consist of one distinguished artist award of $25,000, 20 project awards of up to $5,000, and eight fellowship awards of $12,000.
Past grant recipients include a musician, an interior artist and a painter. One recipient said that he will use his grant money to travel to places he's been and those he's wished to go, painting as he goes. Another grant recipient is going to use their grant money to build a studio on his property.
A lot of the grant recipients are also teachers as well!
This is just another very good example of "free money" - money which is given to the individual that does not have to be paid back!
