Now in its fourth year, this annual $10K grant was developed in partnership with Mariette Pathy Allen, Aaryn Lang, and Serena Jara. The Illuminations Grant, awarded to draw attention to an existing body of work, sheds light on the under-recognized contributions of Black trans women visual artists and provides critical support to their continuing work. The winning artist will receive a studio visit with our rotating panel of judges. This year, the esteemed judges include Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Puppies Puppies, and Lauren Haynes. The grant also provides a $1,250 award to four distinguished finalists!⁣ Applications are open now through July 12th, 2023.
