Black Visual Artist Grant



Williams College recently conducted a study on the diversity of artist collections in US museums and revealed 85% of the artists are white, while only 1.2% are Black.

Black artists aren’t only underrepresented throughout history. Today, 8% of visual artists are Black, while only 4% of art graduates are Black. Art, as we know it, does not provide comprehensive cultural narrative until it includes more Black artists.

This grant is for a Black student pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in studio and/or visual arts.

Through a short essay and portfolio submission, please share how your work as a visual artist intersects with culture.
