Founded in 1986, the mission of the Artist Trust is to support and encourage artists working in any disciplinesto enrich community life in Washington state.
To advance this mission, and with support from Dale and Leslie Chihuly Foundation, the organization is inviting applications for its Arts Innovator Award. The annual program provides $25,000 of unrestricted support to two Washington state generative artists (those who are the originators of works of art) working in any discipline who are originating new work, experimenting with new ideas, taking risks, and pushing the boundaries of their disciplines.
A team of two or more artists may apply if they have a documented history of creating and presenting work as a team for at least three consecutive years. Artists applying as a team must contact Artist Trust to confirm eligibility before applying. Artists of color and artists living outside King County are strongly encouraged to apply.
To be eligible, applicants must be eighteen years of age or older by application deadline, and be a Washington state resident at the time of both application and payment (payment will be made in March 2020).
The application period will open on November 4, 2019.
See the Artist Trust website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
