Check Out The Grants Awarded By The Alexa Rose Foundation
| ALEXA ROSE FOUNDATION GRANTS FUNDS TO LOCAL ARTISTS |
January 12th, 2017
Calling all Treasure Valley artists—the Alexa Rose Foundation wants to help fund your next project!
The Alexa Rose Foundation has provided grants of over $130,000 to 65 local artists in the past two years. We love any organization that strengthens the local art scene and supports Idaho artists!
The grants are open to artists in Ada and Canyon county that work in a variety of mediums, from literary to performing arts. Emerging, mid-career, and established artists can apply for the grants. Artists may apply for up to $5,000 grants.
Alexa Rose and Ken Howell dreamt of one day having a grant that would aid to artists that wanted to create. When Alexa Rose died in 2013, Ken Howell created the foundation in honor of her. Alexa Rose was a painter and had opened an art gallery for both established and upcoming artists.
The foundation provides grants to people only, not to organizations. The goal is that “By funding people, the foundation provides substantial impact on the lives of creative citizens, giving them access to the catalytic experiences and skills they need to develop as artists and as people.”
Applications for the 2017 grant are available now online.
