The Rasmuson Foundation is inviting Alaska artists to apply for Individual Artist Awards. They range from $5,000 and $12,000 to, in one case, $25,000.
Artists who are currently producing or performing work, are at least 18, and who have lived in Alaska for at least two years are eligible. Eligibility has been expanded to dancers, actors, musicians, vocalists and others who are primarily performing artists.
More information is available at http://bit.ly/fTrUR0 and the deadline is March 1.
