Georgia Committee NMWA Announces Artist Relief Fund
Offering Georgia Visual Artists Immediate Financial Assistance

The Georgia Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts has announced it will offer $500 individual visual artist grants to up 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.

The application process for $500 grants will open on Tuesday, May 26 and all applications are due by noon on Sunday, June 7. Grants are available 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 must be 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.

Feel free to contact us directly with additional questions.
