Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue is now accepting applications for the Artadia Awards 2009 Boston from all visual artists living and working in metro Boston. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all media and at any point in their career are strongly encouraged to apply.

Artadia’s mission is to encourage innovative practice and meaningful dialogue across the United States by providing visual artists in specific communities with unrestricted awards and a national network of support. Founded in 1997, Artadia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Artadia Awards are determined through a jury process that employs nationally prominent curators, artists, and critics. Since its founding, Artadia has awarded over $2.0 million to more than 200 artists in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Most recently Artadia launched an artist residency program, which brings Artadia Awardees from each of its program cities to New York for a three-month residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), Brooklyn. The program is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Visionary support for Artadia in Boston is provided by the LEF Foundation, the Linde Family Foundation, an anonymous family foundation, and many generous individuals.
