Two grants are supported by an endowed gift from founding mother and artist Joan Watts. A third grant to an artist west of the Mississippi is made possible by Skip’s Sappho Fund, established at Astraea by a bequest from Skip Neal, a lesbian artist who enjoyed a successful career in museum exhibition. The awards are determined by a distinguished panel of artists and art professionals.

This year, Astraea is introducing an online application for the Astraea Visual Arts Fund.
