Individual Artist Awards
Grants to artists to support the time, reflection, immersion or experimentation beneficial to the development of their artistry.
Every year, the Foundation honors 36 Alaska artists for outstanding creative work with an Individual Artist Award. The awards bring recognition, opportunities for professional development and money.
Artists who have received the awards, Foundation staff and art experts are featured in three new videos designed to help applicants through the process.
Dancers become birds, become predators, become fish, become legendary characters. Drums pound. Voices rise and pulse. Knees bend and shoulders swoop so that blankets come alive. Arms fly out to strike angled postures — here a poised spear, there a wingtip, flight feathers angling in complicated winds.
New this year: Groups and collaboratives can apply
