Grants of up to $2,500 and grants of up to $5,000 to Southeastern Minnesota emerging and advanced artists for career and project support. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Artists from all disciplines are eligible to apply. Eligible applicants are located in one of the following counties: Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, or Winona. All proposed projects must culminate in a capstone event that is accessible and open to the public.
This award is intended to recognize, reward, and encourage outstanding individual artists in the region. An artist at this stage has created an independent body of work over a number of years and has received regional or statewide recognition of their work. Artists at this stage are often, but not always, committed to making a living as an artist, whether or not they are doing so. They may struggle with the balance of producing art and marketing their art. They usually have a well-defined audience and show their art locally, regionally, and perhaps nationally.
The Emerging Artist category provides support to artists who are at a stage in their artistic development where they have some evidence of achievement but do not have a substantial record of accomplishment. The term “emerging” does not refer to an artist’s stylistic evolution but to the artist’s accomplishments and recognition. Artists at this stage are developing their talents and may have been noticed locally. Many artists remain in this category for their entire artistic lives.
Proposals must support specific project goals and are encouraged from artists in all disciplines
