Press Release

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. announces 159 grants totaling $2,325,500 to visual artists internationally in fiscal year 2012-2013.



NEW YORK, NY, July 2, 2013 - Now entering its twenty-ninth year of grant making, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. has reaffirmed its mission of supporting individual visual artists worldwide. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce 159 grants totaling $2,325,500 were awarded to visual artists and organizations internationally in fiscal year 2012-2013. A list of artists awarded grants in fiscal year 2012-2013 follows. These grants support the artists' personal and/or professional expenses for one year. Since its inception in 1985, the Foundation has awarded over 58 million dollars to artists in 75 countries.

Deeply concerned for the welfare of artists affected by the Hurricane Sandy disaster, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation opened its Hurricane Sandy Emergency Relief Fund within days of the storm and began accepting emergency requests for grants to professional visual artists. The Foundation has awarded 51 grants totaling $448,500 to artists affected by the disaster and has also partnered with La Napoule Art Foundation, MacDowell Colony, the Vermont Studio Center and Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild in providing residency space to artists affected by the storm. These grants are figured in the total awarded above.

Pollock-Krasner grants have enabled artists to create new work, purchase needed materials and pay for studio rent, as well as their personal and medical expenses. Past recipients of Pollock-Krasner grants acknowledge their critical impact in allowing concentrated time for studio work, and in preparing for exhibitions and other professional opportunities such as accepting a residency.

Grants are awarded to professional visual artists internationally, based on dual criteria of artistic merit and financial need. Painters, sculptors, printmakers and artists who work on paper are eligible to apply. Artists interested in applying should visit our website at www.pkf.org to view and complete our online application.

Emergency Relief Residencies at the Vermont Studio Center

Supported by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc., as part of its Hurricane Sandy Emergency Relief Fund is collaborating with the Vermont Studio Center to assist visual artists who have experienced damage, losses, and/or displacement due to Hurricane Sandy by providing 4-week to 8-week studio residencies at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT. Eligible professional visual artists can be working in any discipline and must reside in Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York.

By providing a creative community of refuge in Vermont, these Pollock-Krasner/VSC residencies restore normalcy to a creative practice, ease the isolation that often accompanies displacement or disaster, and extend the “artists supporting artists” founding spirit of the Vermont Studio Center to those artists who were directly impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Impacts may include loss of work, loss of or damage to studio space, interruption of creative routine, or displacement.

Applications are accepted and awarded on a rolling basis with residencies scheduled beginning January 2013.

Artists are asked to:
1) Describe the damage sustained as a result of Hurricane Sandy, how a VSC residency would provide relief, and the dates of VSC residency being requested.
2) Submit a current resume/bio and link to artist website.
3) Include any additional information or materials that would help determine eligibility (references, photos, etc.)

Email these materials as attachments to admissions@vermontstudiocenter.org

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. was established in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to individual visual artists of established ability through the generosity of the late Lee Krasner, one of the leading abstract expressionist painters and the widow of Jackson Pollock.

These Emergency Relief Residencies supported by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation are the latest addition to the Vermont Studio Center’s Displaced Artists Fund, established to assist artists and writers displaced by natural disasters and political upheaval worldwide. Since 2001, VSC’s Displaced Artists Fund has helped artists and writers affected by 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and Tropical Storm Irene.

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation is pleased to announce the release of Lee Krasner: A Biography by Gail Levin, published by William Morrow, Harper Collins Publishers

Extracted from the publisher:

Lee Krasner is best known as the artist-wife of Jackson Pollock, the renowned abstract expressionist painter. Yet in this riveting new biography, the first full-length account of her colorful life, distinguished art historian Gail Levin challenges previous portrayals of Krasner, and shows that she was an independent and resourceful woman of uncompromising talent and prodigious energy. Krasner emerges as a significant artist who deserves her place in the twentieth century's cultural lexicon and artistic pantheon.

Drawing on new sources and numerous personal interviews—including with Krasner, whom Levin knew and interviewed during the last years of the artist's life—Levin has written a dynamic, compelling, and moving portrait of a brilliant woman that recovers Krasner's voice and allows us to see that her life intersected with and informed her art.

Gail Levin is the author of Edward Hopper: An Intimate Biography, Becoming Judy Chicago, and many other books on twentieth-century and contemporary art. She is Distinguished Professor of Art History, American Studies, and Women’s Studies at the Graduate Center and Baruch College of the City University of New York.

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation is pleased to announce the release of the Aspen Institute’s groundbreaking report on private foundations endowed by visual artists in the United States

The Artist as Philanthropist: Strengthening the Next Generation of Artist-Endowed Foundations. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, in partnership with the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, led the national consortium of 21 donors that collaborated to support the Aspen Institute's Program in Philanthropy and Social Innovation in undertaking this major initiative, compiled by the Study Director, Christine J. Vincent. Charles C. Bergman, Chairman & CEO of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and a member of the Study Committee advising research, stated, “this report will be an invaluable resource to a broad constituency of artists contemplating the establishment of foundations as well as to their advisors and directors.” Attached is the Aspen Institute’s announcement of the Study report publication and a link to the report itself.

THE ASPEN INSTITUTE'S PROGRAM ON PHILANTHROPY AND SOCIAL INNOVATION RELEASES GROUNDBREAKING REPORT ON PRIVATE FOUNDATIONS ENDOWED BY VISUAL ARTISTS IN THE US

Washington, DC, November 15, 2010—The Aspen Institute's Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation (PSI) announces the release of a new report on the emerging field of private foundations endowed by visual artists in the U.S. The Artist as Philanthropist: Strengthening the Next Generation of Artist-Endowed Foundations draws on findings of the Aspen Institute's National Study of Artist-Endowed Foundations, the first research effort to focus on this distinctive charitable form. Initiated in 2007, the Study identified 300 artist-endowed foundations holding $2.5 billion in assets, including more than $1 billion in art assets. Between 1990 and 2005, the number of these foundations nearly doubled, while charitable purpose disbursements for the period totaled $954 million—$639 million in grants and $315 million in charitable administrative costs, including for direct operation of activities such as exhibition programs, study centers, and artists' residencies. Though only a small portion of all private foundations in the US, artist-endowed foundations are poised to be a force shaping cultural philanthropy and stewarding the country's contemporary art patrimony.

The two-volume publication, which can be viewed online, down loaded, and purchased in hard copy at www.aspeninstitute.org/psi/a-ef-report, provides leaders in philanthropy, the arts, education, and journalism with an overview of the emerging artist-endowed foundation field, its origins, current status, trends, and prospects. Snapshot profiles outline data for more than 130 foundations reporting assets of at least $1 million. In addition, the publication offers artist-donors, their advisors, and foundation leaders a summary of considerations in forming, sustaining, and terminating artist-endowed foundations as well as planning and conducting foundations' charitable programs. Briefing papers by scholars in the arts and philanthropy address key issues in foundation practice and an annotated bibliography cites references on formation and administration of artist-endowed foundations and their programs.

The Study is led by Christine J. Vincent, former Ford Foundation deputy director, Arts and Culture, and supported by a 20-member donor consortium, including the Getty Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Henry Luce Foundation, as well as the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, and Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Members of the Study Committee advising research include Alberta Arthurs, former director, Arts and Culture, Rockefeller Foundation; Charles C. Bergman, chairman and chief executive officer, Pollock-Krasner Foundation; James T. Demetrion, director emeritus, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution; Lowery Stokes Sims, curator, Museum of Arts and Design; James Allen Smith, vice president and director of research and education, Rockefeller Archive Center; and Stephen K. Urice, associate professor of law, University of Miami School of Law.

The Aspen Institute mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society; and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues. The Aspen Institute's Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation (PSI) seeks to inform and maximize the impact of grantmaking foundations, nonprofit organizations, social enterprises, and public-private partnerships through leadership development initiatives, convenings, and communications so that each can contribute to the good society at home and abroad.
