The Arts Commission is committed to serving individual artists in the following ways:
Grants for Individual Artists
The Arts Commission offers two grants designed specifically to serve individual artists: Individual Artist Grant and the WritersCorps Teaching Artist In Residence Grant. We also encourage artists to see our full suite of grant categories and to explore partnerships with nonprofits who may qualify for some of our other funding opportunities.
Several times a year, we offer opportunities to apply for public art commissions and occasionally we seek artists for SFAC Galleries exhibitions. We encourage you to spend time perusing the Artist Opportunities section of this website.
Join hundreds of local artists and make your art your business. A Street Artist License authorizes you to sell your artwork in outdoor markets without the overhead costs of a brick and mortar store.
