The Joan Mitchell Foundation Emergency Grants for United States-Based Visual Artists
The Joan Mitchell Foundation provides up to $6,000 in emergency support to US-based visual artists working in the mediums of painting, sculpture, and/or drawing, who have suffered significant losses after natural or man-made disasters that have affected a region on a broad scale.
Beginning February 4th, 2019, the Foundation will be accepting applications from artists affected by Hurricanes Florence, Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Michael; California wildfires; or other events of this nature or scale.
Artists can apply to the Foundation for funding for up to three years after such an event. The Foundation has historically granted funding to assist in the repair of homes and studios following material destruction; to replace art materials such as brushes, paints, and inks; and to replace equipment such as hand or power tools and computers. Unfortunately, the Joan Mitchell Foundation cannot grant funds towards the retail value of any lost or damaged artwork.
Applications are accepted throughout the year, and reviewed monthly based on volume.
