The Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation gives annual awards of $1500 to individual artists living and working in the United States, and who are engaged in or planning a new craft or visual art project. The Foundation does not accept film, video, performance art or music submissions (except as those media are integrated into a larger craft or visual art project).

An independent jury of artists and/or art professionals will judge the submissions and make its recommendations to the Foundation Board of Directors for final approval. Between 4 and 7 awards are granted annually. Previous winners of a Foundation grant are not eligible for a second award.

Materials from the winning submissions will be retained by the Foundation and may be used by the Foundation for publicity purposes.

Announcement of Awards

2019 grantees will be notified by the end of October and their names will be publicized on this website and on our Facebook page in early November. Due to the large volume of applications, only the award recipients will receive individual notification. The Foundation regrets that it is unable to return application materials.
