Applicants must work in visual media, which may include painting, sculpture, installation, works on paper, printmaking, photography, video, film, digital, or performance art.

Applicants must have a specific project that they wish to pursue.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants may submit their application beginning on February 10, 2020. The deadline for receipt of your application is 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, April 2, 2020. However, the Foundation strongly advises you to not wait until the last minute in order to avoid “traffic jams” in the Dropbox account. Applicants will be notified of the results on or before June 30.

The Foundation will send the applicant a confirmation email when they receive the folder. This process could take up to 72 hours. Note: It is the applicant's responsibility to notify the Foundation (before the application deadline) if the applicant did not receive a confirmation.

Applicants are asked to submit a fully completed application, and the requested biographical and visual documentation. Applicants should focus their proposal on a specific project and present a consistent selection of their artistic work.

Applicants need to create a free Dropbox account, and create a folder following the Foundation's requirements, and share the folder with the Foundation.
