Pollock-Krasner Foundation Awards $3.9 Million to 125 Artists

NEW YORK—The Pollock-Krasner Foundation has awarded nearly $4 million to 125 artists and twenty-five organizations for its 2017–2018 grant cycle. Among this year’s grantees are Artadia in Brooklyn, New York; Beta-Local in San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Whitechapel Gallery in London.

The organization is also giving $100,000 to the Madison Square Park Conservancy in support of Martin Puryear and his US pavilion commission for the 2019 Venice Biennale and $228,000 to artists and organizations that were affected by the devastaing hurricanes and wildfires that occurred in California and across the US earlier this year.

In addition to its annual grant recipients, the foundation also announced that it presented artists Mel Chin, Chris Drury, Alfred Leslie, Don Nice, Morgan O’Hara, and Masami Teraoka with the Lee Krasner Award in recognition of their distinguished careers; and awarded Amy Sherald, whose portrait of former First Lady Michelle Obama was unveiled in February, the 2017–18 Pollock Prize for Creativity. The prize is given to artists whose work embodies high creative standards and exemplifies the impact of art on individuals and society.

“Our 2017-18 grant and award recipients demonstrate the depth and breadth of the artists and organizations the foundation is able to serve, thanks to the legacy of Lee Krasner,” said Ronald D. Spencer, chairman and CEO of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. “We are honored to be able to support Martin Puryear through his commission for the US Pavilion for the 2019 Venice Biennale.”
