5% FOR THE ARTS
THE SHORT OF IT:
5% of your purchase goes into a grant fund, the entirety of which is awarded annually to an individual artist for a specific endeavor, or an individual or non profit organization that supports the growth of artists.
the goal is to provide artists with an opportunity
A NOTE FROM THE MAKER:
One of the most influential educational experiences I have had was in applying for and receiving a grant for metal sculpture from the University of Vermont (project pictured above). The % for the Arts program aims to provide financial assistance for individuals of all ages and art practices to complete or participate in a range of projects or experiences.
The goal is to provide artists with an opportunity to complete a project, attend a class, have an experience, etc. that will help them make strides forward on their creative path.
2017 was our first year in business, with our official website launch in August. With such a short year we've opted to carry over 2017 funds to 2018 and award both in early 2019. We look forward to keeping you all posted as plans emerge!
