Grant Description
Grants of $2,000 and in-kind support to USA visual artists for original visual artwork. In addition to the unrestricted grant, artists will also receive marketing and promotional support. Work from artists from underrepresented or marginalized communities, as well as work that operates outside the standard gallery or museum system, is welcome.

NOT REAL ART Grant winners get more than money. Each recipient gets to share their story and promote with exclusive, in-depth featured interviews on the NOT REAL ART podcast and blog. And, whether or not the artist receive the grant, every applicant automatically qualifies to be included in future blog stories, newsletters, and the artist marketing database.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
To be eligible for a Grant the Artist Applicant must:

- Be a practicing visual artist in a two or three dimensional medium
- Be at least 21 years old
- Be a resident of the United States

Prior Not Real Art grant recipients are ineligible for the 2024 Program.
