Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $6,000 to Minnesota individual artists in specific disciplines for projects that promote career development. Funding is intended to help artists at relatively early stages in their careers accomplish specific, short-term goals. Grants may be used to support emerging ceramic artists. Activities may include, but are not limited to, experimenting with new techniques and materials; working with or studying with a mentor; purchasing equipment to facilitate an aesthetic or technical investigation; providing studio time, studio rental, supplies, technical support, collaborations between ceramic artists and artists working in other media; education or exhibition opportunities; and travel.

An exhibition of work produced during the grant period will take place at Northern Clay Center at the conclusion of the grant. Additionally, recipients will provide a brief image talk about their work in conjunction with the exhibition.

The Foundation supports emerging professional artists who are the principal creators of new work, and:

  • Who take risks and embrace challenges;
  • Whose developing voices reveal significant potential;
  • Who are rigorous in their approach to creation and production;
  • Who have some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishment; and
  • Who are not recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, producers, critics, and arts administrators.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility is restricted to clay artists who have completed all formal academic training by the start of the grant period (April 1, 2020), who are not enrolled either full- or part-time in degree-granting institutions (including BA, MFA, and teaching certification programs), who are not employed full-time as ceramics teachers at the college level, and who meet residency requirements. Applicants are not required to have a degree. The project grants require at least six months of residency in Minnesota prior to the application deadline.
