Art For Sandy Relief: A Closer Look at The Artist Relief Project by New American Paintings

Like most New Yorkers, it was hard to look beyond our own basic necessities in the days leading up to Hurricane Sandy. Bottled water, flashlights, canned food. But as the winds died down and the storm’s damage was made known, the extent of its devastation proved bewildering. The homes, neighborhoods, and businesses in New York and New Jersey that took the worst of hits were highly visible news stories. But in the days and weeks following the storm there was another community whose irreparable damages came to light: those of the arts community. – Nadiah Fellah, NYC Contributor

Our friends at NYFA have recently set up a relief fund for artists effected by Sandy. Details are below (taken from NYFA website)…

The Andy Warhol Foundation, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and Lambent Foundation (a project of the Tides Center) have established an Emergency Relief Fund, administered by NYFA to assist artists with damages and losses as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Eligible artists can be working in any discipline and reside in Connecticut, New Jersey or New York.

Damages are broadly defined and include, but are not limited to: damage to physical work; damage to homes/studios/other facilities; loss of equipment or supplies; loss of income, and reimbursement for cancelled performances/appearances/engagements. We anticipate the overwhelming majority of grants will range between $1,000 and $5,000, but there may be extraordinary circumstances in which slightly smaller or larger grants might be made.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and grants will be issued every two weeks.

To apply, please click on ‘apply’ below to create a new account or to edit an existing application. If you have any questions, please contact rfund@nyfa.org or call 212.366.6900. Requirements for application are posted here
