This is a great opportunity for an artist to receive funding for an art piece in Castleberry Hill. It could be used for a sculpture, mural or even a new metal entry sign for the neighborhood!

Atlanta Artadia Awards are open to all visual artists living and working throughout Greater Atlanta. The 23 eligible counties are: Barrow, Bartow, Butts, Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Morgan, Newton, Paulding, Pickens, Rockdale, Spalding, and Walton. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all media, and at any stage in their career are strongly encouraged to apply. Artadia Awardees are selected through a two-tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading curators and artists. A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select five Finalists in October. A second panel will conduct studio visits with each Finalist, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. Awardees will be selected from the Finalist pool to receive unrestricted Artadia Awards of $10,000. The 2016 Atlanta Awardees will be announced in November and are eligible for the inaugural national Artadia Award.

The Atlanta Artadia Awards are:

– Open to anyone living in the Greater Atlanta area
– Free of application fees and project outline requirements
– Merit-based
– Unrestricted
