RAUSCHENBERG EMERGENCY GRANTS

RAUSCHENBERG EMERGENCY GRANTS

Ongoing Opportunity

The program provides one-time grants of up to $5,000 for unexpected medical emergencies.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is proud to partner with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation to administer a new emergency grant program called Rauschenberg Emergency Grants. This marks the first phase of a program that will be in the tradition of Change, Inc., a non-profit foundation established in 1970 by Robert Rauschenberg to assist professional artists of all disciplines in need of emergency medical aid.

The program will provide one-time grants of up to $5,000 for unexpected medical emergencies. The grants are available to visual and media artists and choreographers who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the United States, District of Columbia, or U.S. Territories. If you aren’t sure if your artistic discipline fits within these guidelines, please contact the grants administrator.

Please note: Rauschenberg Emergency Grants are not for lost wages. Visit NYFA’s Emergency Grants page for a regularly-updated list of emergency resources.

DEADLINE

There is no deadline; applications will be accepted and reviewed by the panel on a monthly basis beginning in late May/early June 2020

Please note: there is a set amount of funding allocated for these grants each year; once this amount has been awarded we cannot accept additional applications until more funds are made available. Our website will indicate when all funds have been granted.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.

Carol Taylor-Kearney creates mixed media paintings and sculptures that are vibrant in color, adventurous in the mediums used, and playful in the open-ended stories or puzzles she presents.  Based on recognizable people, places, and circumstances, she adds a bit of imagination to collected debris to create worlds to touch and to visit.  Often, she takes advantage of combining real-life observations with art history and literature, and the subjectivity of time.  Taylor-Kearney wants observers to feel that they can find something new every time they experience the artwork.
