CASPER, Wyo. — Wyoming artists are eligible for a quick award of $50-$150 to help out during the holidays through ART 321’s “Holiday Joy Fund,” the nonprofit said in an announcement

“This has continued to be a trying year for many artists who have seen little to no relief funding despite the ongoing strain of reduced opportunities to show, sell, and support their small businesses,” ART 321 said.

Single artists are eligible for $50-$100, and those with children can get $50-$150.

Artists can apply here. The Holiday Joy Fund is available to any artist in Wyoming regardless of the membership status at ART 321.

Funds are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.   

The Holiday Joy Fund is a rebranding of the Artist Project Recovery and Emergency Relief Fund, and supplemented with support from the Wyoming Women’s Business Center.

ART 321 is actively seeking donations and contributions to increase the number and size of awards available. To donate to this fund specifically visit art321.org/donate and include “Holiday Joy Fund” in the memo line.
