Grants for professional artists, musicians and performers
As part of his commitment to the local arts community, County Executive Olszewski is making available $100,000 to provide $1,000 stipends for up to 100 artists to help them recoup some of their financial losses due to the pandemic.
Grants will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted, and priority will be given to lower income artists, making $37,500 or less per year. Applicants will submit a streamlined application, document their artistic portfolio, and must be adult Baltimore County residents over the age of 18. More information is available on the Baltimore County Office of Tourism and Cultural Arts webpage, and grant applications will be posted on May 11, 2020 at baltimorecountymd.gov/individualartist.
