ABOUT THE PROJECT

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

THE ARTISTS

The Ford Family Foundation's Visual Arts Program honors the late Hallie Ford's interests in the visual arts. The goal of the program is to help enhance the quality of artistic endeavor and body of work by Oregon's most promising visual artists.

In 2018, the Foundation will once again support two Oregon visual artists with the opportunity to participate in a residency at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation's Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, Florida. Selected artists will receive:

  • a month-long residency in 2018
  • a general stipend of $3,000
  • up to $1,000 in travel and materials support

Please note: This residency opportunity is by invitation only. Invitations will be sent in late-April 2017 to eligible Oregon visual artists to apply for 2018 residencies.
