The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation is accepting proposals for Individual Support Grants.
Description: Since 1976, the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation has been making Individual Support Grants to painters, sculptors and printmakers who have been creating mature art for at least 20 years and who are in current financial need. This program was conceived in order to recognize and support the serious, fully-committed artist. Twelve grants are awarded each year.
Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate that they have been working in a mature phase of their art for at least 20 years. Maturity is based on the level of intellectual, technical, and creative development maintained over this time period. Artists must show that their primary involvement has been with their artistic goals, regardless of other personal or financial responsibilities. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture, or printmaking.
In addition to the maturity requirement, eligibility for an Individual Support grant is determined by the applicant’s current financial need. A financial disclosure page is included in the application which must be completed and signed.
Deadline: December 15, 2014
