SUPPORTING OREGON ARTISTS
A partnership fund supported by the Miller Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation, and the Oregon Arts Commission
The purpose of this partnership is to provide support to Oregon artists who are experiencing financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic and wildfires due to cancellations of exhibitions, performances, rehearsals or other activities with a stipend, events, teaching opportunities, book signings, or other professional presentation opportunities.
In January 2021, relief grants ranging from $1,000 - $5,000 were awarded to 646 artists across Oregon in a wide variety of disciplines. Awards totaling $1.25M were provided by the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation and the Oregon Arts Commission.
This grant program will be offered a second time, with applications available in late 2021 and awards announced in Spring 2022. To be notified when the application opens, be sure to sign up for the new Oregon Artist Registry.
