Dues are: $10 a month for an individual and $20 per month for an organizational membership (depending on how many additional authorized users are linked to the membership account).

Eligibility criteria:

As a national organization, we sponsor projects anywhere in the United States. In most cases, we can also sponsor U.S. artists working internationally. We are very broad in our criteria of what defines art and our review process is not curatorial.
