It’s hard to be an artist in Montana. The Myrna Loy offers cash grants and technical support to working artists to help complete a project, get work to market, or grow your career. Over the last 40 years these small grants have made life just a little easier for artists in the region.
Artists in any discipline living in Lewis & Clark, Broadwater, or Jefferson County are eligible to apply. We usually issue a call for proposals every other year. We’ve given grants to artists as young as 16, and some in their 70s.
Cash grants generally range from $250 to $1000. Spotlight grants may come in the form of an exhibit or performance opportunity, help with publicity, or technical assistance of some kind.
Next Granting Cycle will be announced in January 2020. We usually give you about 2 months to prepare your proposal. They’re easy and straightforward.
