Supporting working artists through Covid-19
The Myrna Loy Grants to Artists program pivots to help working artists get through the Covid-19 crisis.
This month we are offering a few cash grants of $500 each to working artists who are financially challenged by the Corvid-19 shutdown of arts activities.
Who qualifies for consideration?
- If you’re a working artist who makes a significant portion of your income through your art;
- If your art-based income has been significantly reduced because of the Corvid-19 shutdowns;
- If you are a permanent resident of Lewis & Clark, Jefferson, or Broadwater County.
If you qualify, check out our questions below, then click at the bottom to begin your survey.
Deadline is Thursday, May 7.
Questions we will ask:
- Your contact information, including permanent residence address, and other qualifying questions
- What percentage of your income is earned through your art?
- How have the Covid-19 shutdowns affected your ability to make a living through your art?
- What project were you in the middle of working on, and how did the shutdown affect your work?
- What are you still able to work on, and what is holding you up?
- If you received a Myrna Loy Grants to Artists award of $500, what would you use it for?
- What else do you want us to know about your situation, your work, or this application?
You will then be asked to email 3 work samples:
- 1 example of a work in progress–whatever that is, however you can show it;
- 1 example of a recent work, to demonstrate artistic excellence; and
- 1 example that shows your best work ever.
(The application asks for a description of your 3 work samples.)
