Georgia Committee NMWA Distributed 20 Artist Relief Fund Grants
Offering Georgia Visual Artists Immediate Financial Assistance
The Georgia Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts has distributed $500 individual visual artist grants to 20 Georgia-based female and female-identifying artists to help with financial hardship due to COVID-19.
“As longtime supporters of Georgia’s women artists through educational programs and the Women to Watch exhibition program, we wanted to offer our help during this time of great adversity for visual female artists,” says Georgia Committee board chair Sara Steinfeld of this inaugural relief fund.
Grants were distributed to practicing women, femme-identifying and non-binary visual artists living in Georgia who are able to demonstrate a commitment to their work and career and who are experiencing immediate financial need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applicants were at least 21 years of age or older, reside in and have worked in the state of Georgia for the last two years and must have created at least one body of work in the past twelve months.
