FIRST SECURITY ARTISTS GRANT
GRANT AMOUNT: $500 - $3,000
APPLICATIONS TAKEN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
The Holter Museum of Art and First Security Bank understand the vital role working artists play in our community. They also recognize the economic struggles artists face in the pursuit of their craft. First Security Bank is the title sponsor of this program. This grant was created to help artists create new projects, purchase equipment that will help production of their work.
For that reason, the two organizations created the First Security Artist Grants program. This allows artists the opportunity to easily apply for grants. The First Security Grants are meant to increase the exploratory opportunity, economic stability, and production capacity of artists by providing grants up to $3,000 in unrestricted support of visual arts.
Support for individual artists has been a focus of the First Security Artist Grants program since its inception.
FIRST SECURITY ARTIST GRANTS:
One artist or group of artists will be awarded a grant ranging from $500 to $3,000, depending on the review panels recommendation. The Holter Museum requests a final report that describes how the grant helped complete a project or increased an artist’s ability to produce work.
- Visual Arts
- Media Art
An individual or group of artists at any stage of career development - emerging, mid-career, and established - is eligible to apply for the First Security Artists Grants.
