Are You Familiar with the BAG Fund?

Have you heard about the BAG Fund? As many times as we've noted events at the Brooklyn Artists Gym in Gowanus, we'd never noticed the program, which supports artists who are single parents. Here are some details about it:
The BAG Fund, the non-profit arm of Brooklyn Artists Gym, is seeking nominations and applications to its scholarship fund. The BAG Fund supports single-parent artists by providing them with studio space to paint, space to store art supplies and work, and free figure drawing.

Eligible artists are single parents living with their children. They cannot be living with other adults at the time of nomination or application. There is no geographic or gender requirement. The reasons the artist is a single parent are not relevant to this process.

Accepted single-parent artists become Artists-in-Residence for a specified period of time, and derive all the benefits of being a member of Brooklyn Artists Gym.
To apply for a sponsored residency or to nominate someone, email bagfund (at) brooklynartistsgym (dot) com. For more info about the program, click here.
