BusinessAcceleratorGrant_Woman_Wagon

Nicole McGarrell, the person who coordinates marketing partnerships for the fund, wrote–I am writing on behalf of The Clark Hulings Fund For Visual Artists to let you know about our unique Business Accelerator Grants for visual artists, and to ask you please to share this information with Artist Marketing Resources’s network. The fund provides professional working artists with direct financial assistance and support to help them become as skilled at managing their businesses as they are at creating their artwork (details below). Additionally, I’ve attached a flyer that has information about the grant.
