First round of ‘New Normal’ artist winners selected
The Fine Line Group and its partners announced winners of the first round of awards in The New Normal: An Artist’s Response to COVID-19. The program challenges local visual artists to create works that reflect their experience living through the pandemic as members of the Fort Worth area community.
Following a competitive selection process, which included juried review of applicant proposals and portfolios, 13 Fort Worth artists received $2,000 each to fund a COVID-19-inspired work. View the winners’ work.
In late April, the Fine Line Group in partnership with Gallery of Dreams announced the launch of the $100,000 initiative to help Fort Worth’s visual artists get back to work.
Artists may submit applications for round-two awards through May 26, with winners announced May 31. Round-three applications will be accepted May 27-June 10, with winners announced June 15. Following the round-three announcement, The New Normal will announce six artists selected to receive an additional $3,000 to further support their work.
