Our Programs

Artist Apprenticeship Program

The Foundation’s premier program which provides a two-year grant supporting an art fellow at a local fine arts museum. The current program is with the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Read the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico press release for more details about the grant and the fellow. Program start date has been delayed due to the global pandemic. Please check back for the latest updates.

Rapid Funding of Artists

A rapid funding program providing cash grants to qualified artists through our partner organizations. Recently 25 artists were identified to receive $1,000 each through a partnership with the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art (MoCADA) and the Bronx Documentary Center (BDC). Read the feature in The Bronx Daily about the results of the program. In addition, the Foundation provided its first $500 grant targeted to artists on the African continent with a grant to Kefilwe Monosi of Botswana.
