COVID-19 Emergency Artist Assistance Grants provide funding support to Urban Scrawl artists who are experiencing financial hardship caused by the pandemic. Covered expenses include, but are not limited to: housing, utilities, transportation, childcare, loss of employment, late and past due bills, food, emergency repairs, personal expenses, etc.
For Urban Scrawl Artists, By Urban Scrawl Artists
Funds for the artist relief program were raised from the sale of this year's Virtual Scrawl panels at ROY G BIV Gallery in Franklinton. 100% of proceeds from these sales have been deposited into the artist relief fund. In addition, FAD is allocating all unspent portions of grants awarded during the 2019 George Bellows Grant Program to this initiative. The combined total amount of Virtual Scrawl sales and unspent grants is $8,000.
