Grants of $1,000 to Kentucky individual early-career, professional artists for career development opportunities in a variety of disciplines. Funding is intended to assist professional choreographers and musical composers who are responsible for creating their own work, not interpreting the work of others, or creating work under the supervision of an instructor or mentor.
The purpose of the program is to support Kentucky emerging artists engaged in creating artwork of high quality and to recognize creative excellence in early-career, professional Kentucky artists. The Emerging Artist Award program seeks to provide public recognition and acknowledgement of early-career Kentucky artists creating work of artistic merit.
For the purposes of this program, the term “emerging artist” is defined as a professional artist who is in the early stages, up to 10 years, of his/her career. An emerging artist possesses some professional experience (i.e. exhibitions, sales, contracted/paid performances, publications/readings, etc.), but may not yet have established reputations as an artist. Emerging artist applicants may be graduating seniors in bachelor’s programs, graduate students or non-matriculating, early-stage, professional artists. The Emerging Artist Award is unrestricted and may be used in any way to enhance the artist's career.
