Artadia: Curator-Driven Grants for Artists. 

Artadia is a national non-profit organization that supports visual artists with unrestricted, merit-based awards and fosters connections to a network of opportunities. In the past 18 years, Artadia has awarded over $3 million to more than 310 artists throughout its participating award cities of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.

By providing artists with significant, unrestricted financial awards ranging from $5,000 to $20,000, and ongoing assistance through out their careers, Artadia establishes a strong incentive to support artistic excellence. Additionally, continued support is achieved through close collaborations with its host cities to create exhibition opportunities for artists, arrange studio visits with local as well as national curators, source residency programs, and make introductions in the field.

As one of the few organizations to operate on both a local and national level, Artadia is in a unique position to create sustainable fiscal and social change for artists. In addition to its ongoing award cycles, Artadia activates its unique network of artist services and support through national partnerships, the dynamic Art & Dialogue series, and a national award program with the New Art Dealer’s Alliance in New York and Miami. The NADA Artadia Award helps bring recognition to artists who are shown at one of the most visited national art fairs in the world.
