The 2020 Creative Capital Award Application is Open

The 2020 Creative Capital Award Application is Open

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, February 28, 2019

The application for the 2020 Creative Capital Award is now open through February 28 at 2pm ET. Artists in all disciplines may apply in this round, and the application is free for all. Select artists will be invited to move forward to two more rounds. Creative Capital encourages you to finish your application as soon as possible—don’t leave it to the last minute!

Artists who receive the 2020 Creative Capital Award will have access to up to $50,000 in funding to develop their project, plus advisory services valued at $50,000, for a total value of $100,000. They are interested in projects that push the boundaries, as well as artists who are ready to take full advantage of their non-monetary services. Generally, that means that the projects will premiere at least a year and a half after the announcement of the Creative Capital Awards. Read more about the Creative Capital Award.

After the open application period closes at the end of February 2019, we will invite evaluators from all over the country to review the applications we received. We ask evaluators to review projects based on the originality of the proposed idea, the artist’s capacity to make the work, the timeliness of the project, and the artist’s readiness to make use of Creative Capital’s career development services.

In the final stage of the application, we administer an in-person panel review of projects that made it to the third round. We asked some of the panelists that just completed that process for the 2019 Creative Capital Award cycle for some tips about what makes a great application.

I am an abstract artist represented by BeatyAmerican in Olde Kensington, Philadelphia.  My paintings include a series of Arctic landscapes which are based on images of arctic glaciers, tundra, and sea ice mainly in Greenland and Iceland.  I have been selected as the featured artist for the BeatyAmerican new space with NEXTFAB at 1800 American Street, Philadelphia.  I am drawn to the elements of the Arctic sea, land, and sky and the interface among these bodies.  Decisions are made what features and elements will remain and what will be discarded, reflecting a rapidly changing landscape yet still beautiful.
I work with oil paint, wet on dry, on wood panels with cradled frames establishing texture and depth using brushes, palette knives, oil sticks, and oil pens.  Completed paintings are professionally framed and ready to hang.
Earlier work focused on urban landscapes, refineries, bridges, buildings, other structures, and geometric patterns of developed lands and built environments.
