The Basics Fund, Inc is a Non-Profit Corporation Founded in Colorado with the mission of creating a community of appreciation, involvement and sustainability surrounding contemporary art and artists (Tax ID Number: 20-8994621)

The Basics Fund, Inc.
P.O. Box 733
Boulder, CO 80306.

 

The Basics Fund sponsors artists on the following levels:

  • Promotions
  • Management
  • Merchandising
  • Production
  • Health Insurance

In general, due to the incremental increase in financial responsibility, artists are inducted at the “promotions” level, and are given additional levels of sponsorship as resources become available.  However in some situations, artists are sponsored immediately on all levels, or achieve the levels in different orders.

Sponsored Artists are selected from all media of art.  To be considered for sponsorship, an artist must be:

  • Actively producing art (submit at least 1 fresh piece per 6 months)
  • Not already receiving health insurance through an employer or school
  • Artistic.  The work must meet our Selection Committee’s standards for quality.  In general, the submitted pieces should challenge the boundaries of the media in which they exist.  Vision is selected over technical skill.  Commentary on, and demonstrated awareness of, the artist’s or piece’s context within its own movement are especially sought after.  The work should attempt to exist for its own sake, and not for the sake of being a product.

To be considered for sponsorship, please email artists@thebasicsfund.org.  Include a short 500-1000 word bio, and links to your work online, or attached files.
