About Our Artist Grant

The NOT REAL ART Grant encourages artists to explore, experiment, question and disrupt the status quo of today’s art world. While the Grant annually awards 6 artists $2000 with no strings attached, it also provides a platform to help them tell their story and promote their work to a wider audience. All grant recipients are featured on the NOT REAL ART Podcast and Blog and showcased in an annual Gallery Exhibition.

Past Recipients include: (2019 Class) Beth Abaravich, Edmund Arevalo, Juliana Bustillo, Talya Coviello, Maria Delvs, Eben Eldridge, Karen Fiorito, Marguerite Kalhor, Monica Leal Cueva, Thony Loui, Jessie Noguchi, Rachel O’Donnell; (2020 Class) Gershon Kreimer, Kiara Aileen Machado, Paloma Montoya, Jacqueline Valenzuela, Tijera Williams, Miki Yokoyama.

Grant recipients are selected based on their written application and artwork samples. Selected artists demonstrate a strong sense of ingenuity, emotion and craft in their work. This year’s judges include: MonaLisa Whitaker, Man One, Heidi Johnson, Cheyanne Sauter and Scott “Sourdough” Power.

The grant application process is simple. Go to NotRealArt.com to submit your contact details, bio, artist statement and up to 5 pieces of your work for consideration. (Note: We suggest you get all of your materials and images ready before filing your application using the online form.)
