Artists are invited to submit proposals to provide new or existing temporary illuminated artworks as part of Redmond Lights in Redmond, Washington. The festival is sponsored by the City of Redmond:
Redmond Lights is a celebration of Winter holiday traditions, cultures, and faiths of the diverse Redmond community explored through light and art installations and performances. This celebration is intended to create a sense of a connected culturally- diverse community and provide residents with a unique exposure to diverse art.
All too often, society expects artists to work for free. Artists deserve fair compensation. Our charitable organization has supported artists since 2017 by providing a modest competitive grant of $500 to one artist every quarter, and $100 each to 2nd and 3rd place recipients.
We are a small group of individuals from different creative backgrounds, committed to fulfilling Artist Grant's mission. Our group functions as the initial grant selection jury, and former grant recipients serve as guest jurors for the final selection round.
Please note that these grants are available only to mature individual visual artists. The Foundation defines maturity in this case as having worked for 20 years or more in a mature phase of art.
The Gottlieb Foundation does not fund organizations, educational institutions, students, graphic artists, or those working in crafts. The disciplines of photography, film, video, or related forms are not eligible unless the work directly involves, or can be interpreted as, painting or sculpture. The Foundation does not fund exhibitions, installations, or projects of any kind.
Last year, the Foundation awarded grants of $25,000 each to 20 artists.
