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.
