The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation
The Foundation wishes to encourage artists who have dedicated their lives to developing their art, regardless of their level of commercial success. This program was conceived in order to recognize and support the serious, fully-committed artist, and we hope these individuals will consider applying. Twelve grants are awarded each year. Applications are reviewed by a panel of five professionals in the arts who have no affiliation with the Foundation.
The Pollock Krasner Foundation
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. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will consider need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate expenditures relating to his or her professional work and personal living, including medical expenses. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist.
Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts

The program also supports the creation of new work through regranting initiatives and artist-in-residence programs.
Black Rock Arts Foundation Grants
BRAF funds highly interactive, community-driven works of art. They fund art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope and prompts the viewer to act. They like art that can be experienced in more ways than visually. They are fans of art that is meant to be touched, heard or experienced, as well as viewed. They prioritize funding art that involves the audience in its creation and presentation. Does this sound like your artwork? Apply for a grant in 2011!

FEAST: Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics
This recurring, public dinner is designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging artmakers. At each FEAST, participants pay a sliding-scale entrance fee for which they receive supper and a ballot. Diners will vote on a variety of proposed artist projects. At the end of dinner, the artist whose proposal receives the most votes will be awarded funds collected through the entrance fee to produce the project. The work is then presented during the next FEAST.
