Rasmuson Foundation’s Individual Artist Awards are divided into three award programs for artists living and working in Alaska: Distinguished Artist awards, Project Awards, and Artist Fellowships. Distinguished Artist awards ($40,000) are designed for a mature artist of recognized stature with a history of creative excellence and accomplishment in the arts. Project Awards (up to $7,500) are geared toward emerging, mid-career, and mature artists for specific, short-term projects that have a clear benefit to the artist and the development of his/her work. And Artist Fellowships ($18,000) are provided to mid-career or mature artists to focus their energy and attention for a one-year period on developing their creative work. 2013 Fellowships will be offered in the following areas: choreography, crafts, folk and traditional arts, literary arts/scriptworks and performance art.
