2016 GRANTEES

May 2016 – $64,000 Granted to Idaho Visual Artists.

The Alexa Rose Foundation was founded in 2015 to provide substantial impact on the lives of creative residents of Ada and Canyon County, giving them access to the catalytic experiences and skills they need to develop as artists and people.

In its second cycle of grants for visual artists, the Alexa Rose Foundation received 88 applications totaling $255,600 in requests. Artistic mediums represented included painting, photography, digital art, film, textiles, ceramics, mixed media, printmaking, metalwork, sculpture and glass. The majority of the applications were from emerging and mid-career artists. Approximately half of the applications sought grant funding for a learning opportunity, while the other half were for equipment and supplies.

The Foundation had $64,000 to fund artists this year, so the competition was significant. In the end, 30 local artists representing multiple artistic mediums were awarded grants. Almost half of the awards were for learning opportunities, while the remainder were for equipment, supplies and production expenses. Grants were awarded to emerging, mid-career and established artists. Grant amounts varied from $250 – $5,000.
