COVID-19 Emergency Resources for Visual Artists

In this uncertain time, we understand that artists are struggling and looking for emergency support resources. In response to the unprecedented scale of the COVID-19 crisis, we have increased and reallocated the Joan Mitchell Foundation's Emergency Grants budget to Artist Relief, a national, multidisciplinary initiative offering rapid, unrestricted funding of $5,000 to individual artists in all disciplines. 

In addition to that effort, we've compiled a list of resources here that may address your most immediate needs. This is an evolving list that we will continue to update.
