Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant
2013 Artist Advancement Grant Recipient Justin Kirchoff of Eliot, Maine
The Artist Advancement Grant Program
Recognizing that artists are an essential resource to a vital community, the Artist Advancement Grant Program provides financial support to individual visual artists and craftspeople in the Piscataqua Region to promote their artistic growth. The Foundation seeks to make grants that reflect and support the diversity of ideas, art forms, expression, and culture of the artistic community of this region and therefore seeks applicants who represent this diversity.
The grant amount is up to $25,000 based on the written request of the artist. In addition to the Artist Advancement Grant, up to three finalists may be recognized with awards of $1,000 each.
