Irma Relief Fund

As the effects of Hurricane Irma continue to ripple through our community, ArtCenter/South Florida, Art Basel and its parent group MCH have partnered on a relief fund for visual artists from Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys.

The South Florida Visual Artists Irma Relief Fund is now accepting applications for up to $500 in relief from the storm. The application is open now through Dec. 22, and requests will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis to cover damage to artist workspaces, artworks, materials or lost income.

To apply, artists can go to Employees1st.org/sfva, where they can find a simplified application that asks for details on the damage the artist suffered, supporting documents and a CV to demonstrate the applicant is a working artist. The fund is being administered by The Baton Rouge Area Foundation.

While ArtCenter typically limits its funding to Miami-Dade, artists in Monroe County were hit so hard, the center wanted to invite them to participate in the fund.

NOTE: When you register to apply, please choose as your “employer” the name of the fund: The South Florida Visual Artist Irma Relief Fund.
