For more than three decades, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation has supported working artists internationally. Established in 1985 though the generosity of Lee Krasner-one of the foremost abstract expressionist painters of the 20th century, the Foundation is a leader in providing resources to emerging and established artists. To date, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation has awarded more than 5,000 grants to professional artists and organizations in 79 countries, for a total of over $87 million.


Through its individual artist grants, the Foundation provides financial resources for artists to create new work, acquire supplies, rent studio space, prepare exhibitions, attend a residency and offset living expenses, allowing them to better pursue their art.
