Thank you, TD Charitable Foundation, for your most generous grant award of $10,000! This grant will allow 10 emerging artists to attend ACA residencies in 2021 “fee free.“ With this funding, TD Charitable Foundation is providing opportunity, mentorship, and support to artists who are facing difficulties in overcoming the barriers that prevent them from growing their art practice. It also gives them access to the financial and professional tools necessary to succeed in their careers. Because of the setbacks due to COVID-19 this year, access has become more critical than ever before. Being able to attend a residency “fee free” is a tremendous opportunity and will make a great impact on the lives of these talented artists. #TDReadyCommitment

Due to COVID-19 and the immense stress it has put on artists, ACA is offering FULL scholarships to accepted artists. The Board of Trustees and staff feel protecting our core mission is paramount, and are grateful to the Pabst Steinmetz Foundation for allowing us to make this commitment to funding exceptional artists during these times. All residency fees, room, and board are waived; this does not include travel, transportation, and artist materials
