Emergency grant apps open to help artists with storm damages

The Joan Mitchell Foundation opened the 2020 application to its Emergency Grants for individual artists.

These grants provide up to $6,000 to U.S.-based visual artists who have been impacted by a natural or man-made disaster affecting a region on a broad scale.

The Emergency Grant is intended to help artists reestablish a studio practice. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and requests will be considered up to three years following a damaging event. 2020 is the final year they will be accepting applications for artists affected by 2017 events: Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma, and 2017 California Wildfires. For more information and the link to the application, please visit https://joanmitchellfoundation.org/artist-programs/artist-grants/emergency.

This is of particular importance to artists in regions affected by Hurricanes Florence, Harvey, Irma, Maria, Michael, and Dorian; California wildfires; Puerto Rico earthquakes, or other events of this nature or scale.
