Art funding awards offered

The Rasmuson Foundation is offering an Individual Artist Awards program that will provide financial awards to individual artists living and creating in Alaska. There are three award categories:

Project awards: Awards of up to $5,000 for emerging, mid-career and mature artists for specific, short-term projects that have a clear benefit to the artist and the development of his or her work.

Artist fellowships: $12,000 awards for mid-career or mature artists to focus their energy and attention for a one-year period on developing their creative work.

Distinguished artist: $25,000 annual award for an artist of recognized stature with a history of creative excellence and accomplishment in the arts.

The awards are intended to give artists the resources to concentrate and reflect on their work, to immerse themselves in a creative endeavor and to experiment, explore and develop their artistry more fully.

The deadline for submission is Oct.1. Applications and guidelines are available on the Rasmuson Foundation Web site at www.rasmuson.org or by calling (907) 297-2700 or toll-free in Alaska (877) 366-2700.
