Deadline: July 15th. The Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation gives annual awards of $1500 to individual artists living and working in the United States, and who are engaged in or planning a new craft or visual art project. Applicants should have a developed body of work. The Foundation does not accept film, video, performance art or music submissions (except as those media are integrated into a larger craft or visual art project).
An independent jury of three artists or curators will judge the submissions and make its recommendations to the Foundation Board of Directors for final approval. Between 4 and 7 awards are granted annually. Previous winners of a Foundation grant are not eligible for a second award.
Winning submissions will be retained by the Foundation and may be used by the Foundation for publicity purposes.
