Heads Up, Emerging Artists of All Ages: Joan Mitchell Foundation Opens Up its Grant Options

The foundation’s namesake in her studio, 1957.

Up until two years ago, the national Joan Mitchell Foundation‘s primary grant for emerging artists was through its MFA Grant Program. In recognition of the homogeneity within such programs, the foundation has scrapped that grant plan and started over with a new initiative.

The Emerging Artist Grant Program, in its pilot year, will “award a diverse group of ten artists with an unrestricted grant of $12,000 per artist in addition to professional support throughout the year.” The foundation continues, “We will thoughtfully engage a broad group of emerging artists and prioritize diversity in all areas, including artistic practice, geographic location, gender, age, background, socio-economic level, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and all levels of educational attainment.” And there’s no age cut-off. The foundation will locate nominators nationally and an independent jury will go from there.
