Seattle artist Su Job was a woman of extraordinary energy and drive, fiercely dedicated to her art and to the Pioneer Square neighborhood. She believed that the value of art should transcend the buying and selling of objects, and that artists should take responsibility in their communities to stimulate ideas, conversation and change. This grant opportunity seeks artists with many of the same attributes and attitudes.
Su passed away in 2008—in honor of her legacy and to carry out her vision, we partner with her estate and Artist Trust to offer an annual, unrestricted grant of $3,000 to artists who have demonstrated a profound ability to challenge the limits of creative discourse and its effects on our society, pushing the artistic act beyond accepted limits, and who have a connection to the Pioneer Square neighborhood. Artists or artist teams working in any media or discipline can apply for this grant. Su was interested in acknowledging persons who are committed to an artistic practice that connects with community and society.
