Frontline Arts is very pleased to announce the gift of a Veterans’ Opportunities in Art and Art Education Fund to help support Veteran Residencies and our Frontline Paper Program.
Ella Rue and Bob Eyet generously gifted the “52 Reasons to Love a Vet” fund, via Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation, Inc, (along with the full collection of original artwork by world-renowned artists and illustrators and supporting merchandise) in 2021. This much-needed funding will allow us to bring further support to our Frontline Paper Program plus other educational opportunities for veterans looking for a full immersion in techniques based in papermaking, printmaking and other social arts practices, virtually and in our studios.
The funding for Veterans Opportunities in the Arts and Arts Education at Frontline Arts can be used for residencies, workshop scholarships, editions, studio time and more. Please fill out the full application due by 2/15/2022 with awardee(s) announced around the first week of March 2022.
The residency can be completed any time from May 1, 2022 through Dec 31, 2022 and can be in-person, hybrid or virtual/remote. Awarded residents also have the option to be recommended for an additional, separate residency at Monson Arts in Maine.
Frontline Arts will provide full or partial residency/scholarship assistance from the Veterans Opportunities in the Arts and Arts Education Fund. This will be given to veterans who demonstrate need, are eligible as defined below, who fully and accurately complete this application and are approved by Frontline Arts. All funds will be applied towards various expenses for travel, housing (please note that Frontline Arts does not provide housing accommodations), Frontline Arts workshops, studio use and studio services, and the remaining balance (if any) and materials (if needed) must be paid for and obtained by the applicant in order to complete the class enrollment or residency. It is also expected that the resident engage in some way with the community, whether it is a presentation, open studio, event or workshop.
Eligibility: This scholarship and residency is available to any veteran who proposes a compelling project and need.
Frontline Arts reserves the right to deny any requests deemed not eligible or incomplete.
