Disasters are unpredictable, and the impact on an artist’s life and work can be devastating. Emergency Grants help artists recover material losses and get back to their artistic practices.
In response to the unprecedented scale of the COVID-19 crisis, we have increased and reallocated the Joan Mitchell Foundation's 2020 Emergency Grants budget to Artist Relief, a national initiative providing relief grants of $5,000 to individual artists across disciplines, and Creative Response, a New Orleans-based relief effort.
No further applications will be accepted for our Emergency Grants for 2020.
Additionally, we are maintaining a list of national resources responding to the pandemic.
