The Clark Hulings Fund
The Clark Hulings Fund (CHF) helps professional visual artists compete in an increasingly complex marketplace by providing them with strategic business support, training, and targeted financial assistance.
Through our Business Accelerator Program, we offer direct customized training to visual artists. Those artists who are chosen to be Accelerator Fellows receive a range of benefits, including free admission to our rigorous educational program, access to business and art-industry experts, and eligibility for direct funding. Since November 2013, we have awarded grants to 10 artists, and we will be selecting up to ten additional artists from among the Accelerator class of 2017 to receive a total of $10,000 in direct grants (no fiscal sponsorship required). Our grants cover targeted expenses related to specific projects that are designed to advance an artist's career.
Our team of experts applies its extensive knowledge and experience in business strategy, instructional design, programming, journalism, digital reporting, and data science to create professional-grade programming on the business of art. Our educational program was built around the way adults learn, and offers all artists with Internet access an educationally sound balance of topics, formats, venues, and contributors.
