Our 2019 North Adams Project is live!

North Adams is a rural gem with a world-class art museum, vibrant creative community, and affordable housing. Assets for Artists wants to give artists yet another reason to call North Adams home: a $2,000 matching grant + free professional development support. This year’s North Adams Project is open to artists already based in North Adams and those considering a move in 2019. Apply now through June 17!

Welcome 2019 Massachusetts Grantees!

It’s time to announce our 2019 Massachusetts statewide Matched Savings Program grantees! It’s such a big group this year, we’re introducing them in two blog posts. Click HERE and HERE to meet the latest artists to become part of A4A. This year’s grantees are making dynamic work in paint, ceramics, sculpture, dance, video, photography, and more.

Over the next 1-2 years, each of our new grantees will take professional development workshops with A4A, write a business plan, and invest their savings + matching grant funds in the sustainable future of their creative practices. We’re excited to see what they accomplish!


We’re hiring!

Now in our eleventh year of programming, we’re ready to bring a fourth staff person on board! We are seeking a talented full-time Communications & Fundraising Coordinator to join the Assets for Artists team at MASS MoCA.

We’re super friendly. Come work with us!
