“Sharp as suga, Sweet as cane” by Ute Petit (Courtesy Queer|Art) Queer|Art’s annual $10K grant was developed in partnership with Mariette Pathy Allen, Aaryn Lang, and Serena Jara.

Now in its fourth year, the Illuminations Grant, was awarded to draw attention to the under-recognized contributions of Black trans women visual artists and provides critical support to their continuing work.

Applications for this year’s grant are now open through July 12. Along with the $10,000, the winning artist will receive a studio visit with its rotating panel of judges that include Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Puppies Puppies and Lauren Haynes.

Winning artists will receive additional professional development resources and further guidance to bolster their creative development in the field.
