Kenneth A Picerne, Artist Outreach Project Grant Re-opened in North County

Artists "apply" for a fabulous program and give back to your community! The North County Areas had been re-opened for artists!

The Artist Outreach Project (AOP) gives experienced artists a chance to share their passion and expertise with people who might not otherwise have opportunities to enjoy the benefits of quality arts programs. Click on a link for more information.

The Foundation is well aware of the enormous therapeutic and educational contribution artists can make to those in-need within their communities. Artists often do not receive the support necessary to allow them to make this contribution. The Foundation also recognizes that significant therapeutic and educational impact rarely occurs in short "hit-and-run" programs. Therefore, the Foundation has developed a year-long program that provides support for experienced artists who are motivated to contribute to their community.

Through the Artist Outreach Project, The Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation awards grants to accomplished visual, performing and literary artists, age 55 and older. These grants are intended to support the artists' efforts to give back to their community. Artists awarded the grant spend six to eight hours a week with an underserved group served by a non-profit organization of their choice, sharing their talent in arts-based services that are both educational and therapeutic.

Application Information: The Foundation will begin accepting applications on May 1, 2014. The application deadline is Thursday July 31, 2014. In the meantime, artists interested the Artist Outreach Project are encouraged to contact the Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation to discuss plans for an Artist Outreach application in 2014.

Visit or contact Victor Nelson, the Foundation Executive Director, if you are an artist with questions about the Artist Outreach Project, if you represent a nonprofit organization interested in hosting a visual, performing, or literary artist, or if you are interested in starting an Artist Outreach Project in your own community.
