2019 PROFESSIONAL ARTIST GRANT
Congratulations to our 2019 Artist Laureate Grantee and Professional Artist Grantees!
The Creative Pinellas Professional Artist Grant is designed to support and sustain Pinellas County’s creative community and to enhance the County as an arts and culture brand. The program provides an unrestricted financial award to Pinellas County artists of outstanding talent and ability who, with a history of increasingly successful work on the local, national, or international stage, bring recognition, awareness and interest to our community, inspire other artists and art lovers, and help make Pinellas County a vibrant arts and cultural community.
New in 2019, the Grants of $5,000 each are open to performing artists as well as to artists doing original work in the disciplines of:
- Choreography (composition/performance)
- Media Arts
- Music (composition/performance)
- Theater/Musical Theater (composition/performance)
- Visual Arts
Also new in 2019 is a $10,000 Artist Laureate grant presented to the artist determined by overall panel score as well as overall panel input and criteria, and who is interested in and will be able to effectively represent Creative Pinellas to share their skills, and expertise and supporting the organization’s mission over the grant period.
