Artists In Focus Fund
Created as a call-to-action to mitigate some of the pandemic’s impact, The Artists In Focus Fund generated immediate funds for Baxter St artists who have an urgent need for direct and additional support. The fund’s launch comes on the heels of the 10th anniversary of Baxter St’s prestigious artist-in-residence program. The curated selection of prints will highlight a decade of artists. Providing support to artists at pivotal junctures in their practice has been the cornerstone of Baxter St’s mission throughout its 136-year history. Artists in Focus Fund is an example of its mission in action. The fund will allow its community to have agency in empowering artists with a unique lens of the world and pay it forward to the next generation in an equitable way.
This sale was a huge success and raised over $95,000 for artists, giving all 76 participating artists a baseline stimulus of $500 in only six weeks.
