2019 Emerging Artist Grant
The Emerging Artist Grant Program provides recipients with funding towards the production of new work, to be exhibited and/or performed at the culmination of the grant award period. This award seeks to assist in the recognition and support of artists early in their career, regardless of age, who are gaining momentum and who may be at a critical juncture of their development in which financial support would assist them with attaining their goals. Emerging Artists are defined as those who are widely recognized by their peers and the community at large for the quality of their work, but who have not yet amassed a significant record of solo exhibitions, publications or full performance and/or production of their work – or – have not yet realized a majority of their income through the creation and sale of their work. The grant is available to artists aged 18+ who currently live in Pinellas County, and have done so for at least one (1) year prior to February 18, 2019.
Grant awards of $2,000 are open to artists doing original work in the disciplines of:
- Media Arts
- Theater/Musical Theater
- Visual Arts
