The Franklin Furnace Fund
Each year Franklin Furnace awards grants to emerging artists, allowing them to produce major works in New York. Works may engage the Internet as an art medium and/or venue. Grants range between $2000 and $5000. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply; full-time students are ineligible.
Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe that this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of "emerging artist," "performance art" and "variable media art." So if at first you don't succeed, try again.
Since its inception in 1985 THE FRANKLIN FURNACE FUND has boosted the careers of such emerging artists as Tanya Barfield, Patty Chang, Papo Colo, Brody Condon, Karen Finley, John Fleck, Kate Gilmore, Murray Hill, Holly Hughes, Mouchette, William Pope.L, Pamela Sneed, Jack Waters, Cathy Weis, and Ricardo Miranda Zuñiga.Please download the guidelines and read carefully before applying.
