Grants for Visual Artists 2021 | Pollock-Krasner Foundation

Deadline: Not Specified

Through the generosity of Lee Krasner, one of the foremost abstract expressionist painters, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation was established in 1985 to provide financial resources to individual visual artists internationally. To date, the Foundation has awarded almost 5,000 grants totaling over $80 million in 78 countries.


The Foundation provides financial resources for visual artists to create new work, acquire supplies, rent studio space, prepare for exhibitions, attend a residency and offset living expenses.


The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. There are no deadlines. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will review expenditures relating to an artist’s professional work and personal expenses and amounts range up to $30,000. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in professional artistic venues, such as gallery and museum spaces.


The Foundation does not accept applications from commercial artists, graphic artists, video artists, performance artists, filmmakers, crafts-makers, or any artist whose work primarily falls into these categories.

Interested Artists are invited to apply via this link.
