Not Real Art Grant

2020 Grant Recipient Exhibition

Help us celebrate the 2020 Grant Recipients

As the creator of NOT REAL ART, I want to congratulate our 2020 class of grant recipients. I also want to thank our friends at Art Share LA for helping us facilitate this grant.

NOT REAL ART is an artistic-centric platform created to celebrate and elevate artists, honor and amplify their contributions to human culture. We do this by telling their stories and promoting their work on our podcasts, events and blog. And, with our grant. This year’s grant recipients were selected based on many factors. The most important factors being the quality of the artist’s work and how they challenge the status quo of a dysfunctional art world.

Congratulations again to our 2020 grant recipients! Please keep up the great work and the courage of your convictions. Your contributions to human culture are invaluable as they challenge our minds and feed our souls.

No complaints and especially thank you for the (weekly) Monday emails.

Great overall

I’ve found the experience with the NOT REAL ART Grant to be great overall! Not once have I felt out of the loop, every email is informative and interesting! I really appreciate being regularly updated on the current status of the application, as well as new and exciting events!

Leandra Brandson - Artist

Thank you for all you do

The submission process was straight forward and you provided a way for video to be viewed which can sometimes be a challenge in submission processes. Thank you for all you do and for your support of the arts!

Carmen Menza - Artist

Thank you for the great experience

profile-pic

I’ve been so anxious throughout this whole process, but in a good way! This is the first grant I’ve ever applied for and I wasn’t sure how the experience was going to go. I want to thank you for the great experience and for being so informative.

Sabrina Hairston - Artist

Well done…

This build-up to the "big announcement" is kind of nice! Even if I get it I appreciate the anticipation and recognition. I also love the concept since so much of our work is hard to define or categorize, as art should be, not the exception. Well done!

Sarah Madeleine T. Guerin - Artist

I felt understood as an artist…

profile-pic

I really enjoyed the process of applying to this grant. Unlike some other grants, I felt understood as an artist. I also really appreciate the frequent email (updates) which keep us in the loop. I truly feel part of this process, regardless of the results. It really makes me want to be a part of this community.

Diane Navarro - Artist

Not looking for trophies

profile-pic

Instead of an "art trophy" for winners, why not just add more to cash the grant award? Pretty sure grant applicants are not looking for trophies.

Joseph Weinzettle - Artist

Will there be cake?

profile-pic

Overall, you are doing okay. However, all the emails revving us up for "the big announcement," triggers a stress response in me. I don’t want to be wound up and revved up for yet another rejection. It’s like dealing with my aging cat sitting at the door. In or out? Make up your mind. Will there be cake afterwards? I do better with cake.

Terri Lloyd - Artist

I loved the podcasts too

This experience has been great! I loved the podcasts too!

Sherry Knutson - Artist

Your updates make me feel involved and appreciated

profile-pic

It’s wonderful to be updated on the status of the grant process. Many times, when you submit for a grant, you don’t hear anything. This can be very nerve wrecking. The updates make the artist feel more involved and appreciated.

Miriam Kruishoop - Artist

You keep us informed…

“I actually enjoy the weekly emails and I look forward to them. I think it is great that you keep us all informed.

Jessica Braun - Artist
