The Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Foundation Grant
Applications for the 2012 grant cycle are now available.
The late Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed were former students of Hans Hofmann who studied with him in both New York and Provincetown. They were very active at PAAM as artist members, instructors in the summer school, and they served on a variety of committees throughout their 50 years on Cape Cod. Lillian, in particular, was sensitive to the challenges artists face, especially those working against the mainstream or outside of popular schools of art. Her desire to provide financial support to mature artists through this generous endowment gift speaks to her passionate commitment to art for art’s sake and art created regardless of the demands and whims of the market place.

Grants are offered to American painters aged 45 or older who demonstrate financial need. The primary emphasis is to promote public awareness and a commitment to American art, as well as encouraging interest in artists who lack adequate recognition.
