The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has authorized The Velocity Fund, which is administered by Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, to allocate funds to create and administer a COVID-19 Artist Emergency Relief Fund for Philadelphia’s visual artists with urgent need due to the pandemic. 

Over the coming months, The Velocity Fund will manage the distribution of individual $1,000 unrestricted, one-time grants to Philadelphia visual artists based on an open application process.

Any practicing visual artist, who is currently a resident of Philadelphia and has experienced financial loss and/or hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic is encouraged to apply.  

To ensure equity and transparency in the distribution of these funds, Temple Contemporary will select the recipients of this Emergency Fund through a blind-drawing (lottery) of all eligible applications. To increase the accessibility of funds during this ongoing crisis, the grants will be available and distributed in multiple phases. This staggered approach will allow artists not currently impacted by COVID-19 the opportunity to apply in the future if their situation changes.  

Artists who need financial relief can apply now—the application is short and simple. Please read the COVID-19 Artist Emergency Relief Grants FAQ page for further details on eligibility, the application process and grant distribution.  

First Application Deadline: Monday, April 27, 2020

Matthew Borgen's recent work utilizes imagery from comic books published during the mid-20th century — the genre’s so-called golden age. Using their visual conventions, nostalgic aura, and narrative structure in combination with images borrowed from art history and other popular cultural sources, Borgen has developed a hybrid visual language which he uses in his digital prints and wall installations to make comment on topics ranging from historical, formal strategies of artmaking to issues within the current political and social discourse.
