Each artist will receive $1,000 USD of discretionary funds (not accounting regional taxes) after their visit. This modest discretionary fund is meant to cover the artist’s exhibit related costs and cultural excursions in the New England area. The costs of each artist’s economy travel, accommodation for the two weeks, and meals will be provided.
