The $1000.00 Working Artist Grant / Art Purchase Award
Call for Artists – Submissions Deadline: November 30, 2019

The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is a meager one-time art award intended to disperse small but vitalizing bursts of funding to support an artist’s ongoing art making process.

This award is available to all artists worldwide, working in all traditional and new visual arts mediums, including but not limited to: conceptual, installation, drawing, painting, prints, sculpture, glass, mixed media, new media, photography and video. We regret that we do not accept submissions for music, performance or dance.

If selected as our winner, we ask that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in our collection, in return for our award. Work considered by the artist as of equal value, and available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. We do pay the artist’s shipping costs. Please send us your best work for review.

We wanna make it super simple to submit your work : send us your websiteor 5 images (each under 1 mb), along with your name and contact information to[email protected]. No written proposals or CV’s are required unless the artist would like to include them. There is no application form.

There is a submission review fee of $25.00, payable here.

which helps offset the costs of this effort to fund meaningful work by serious artists.

SPARC, Inc. – Music and Art Specialists Needed

SPARC, Inc. is a non-profit based in Yorktown Heights.  For 31 years SPARC has been providing meaningful life experiences to children, youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who reside in Westchester and the surrounding areas.  SPARC offers a diverse selection of arts, sports, and wellness programs for participants aged 5 to adulthood.  Different from other special needs support organizations, SPARC aligns people based on their abilities rather than disabilities and offers fun and engaging activities within a structured and nurturing environment.  Our programs continue to impact 1,500 participants through social, therapeutic and recreational services that create a sense of connection and inclusion.

We are looking for specialists in Music and Art to work with adults with developmental disabilities in group homes and day programs to provide an interactive therapeutic experience for our participants.  Ability and willingness to travel throughout Westchester and the Bronx (depending on location of program) is important.  Experience working with a special population is helpful but not necessary.  Passion and a desire to help people is key!
