The Artadia Awards provide financial support, exposure and recognition to artists. The awards are unrestricted, allowing artists to use the funds in any way they choose.
Each year, an open-call application is made available in each of the six active partner cities for any artist who has lived within that city’s eligible counties for a minimum of two years, has not received an Artadia Award previously, and is not currently enrolled in art school. Supporting artists equitably is a critical part of the Artadia Award process: we consider the unique populations of each community and are proud to reflect our country’s diversity with an Awardee pool that is over 50 percent female and over 40 percent persons of color.
Awardees also receive a dedicated webpage on Artadia’s online Artist Registry; studio visits with renowned curators and collectors; and regular dialogue with Artadia’s staff members, who offer guidance and facilitate valuable connections. The inclusion of Awardees in prominent exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial (five Awardees were featured in 2017, and six in 2019) attests to Artadia’s standing as an influencer and connector in the art community.
