Hermitage Artist Retreat Receives NEA Funding



The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Jane Chu recently approved more than $25 million in grants as part of the NEA’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2018.  Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $15,000 to the Hermitage Artist Retreat for artist residency support. This money will cover the cost of supporting three six-week residencies or eighteen single weeks of artist residencies. The Art Works category is the NEA’s largest funding category and supports projects that focus on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and/or the strengthening of communities through the arts. The Hermitage is a not-for-profit artist retreat that invites accomplished painters, sculptors, writers, playwrights, poets, composers and other artists from all over the world for residencies on its beachfront campus. Artists are asked to interact with the community during their stay and as a result, Hermitage artists touch thousands of Gulf Coast community residents with unique and inspiring programs each year.
