Groton Artists' Valentines Project

Artist's Valentine's Project

Fundraising for Artists, by Artists

Each year artists make valentines of all sorts and donate them them to the Artist's Valentines Project.

Proceeds from the Valentines' sale fund juried, unrestricted grants awarded in the spring. Artists who  donated Valentines may apply.

Since 1996 over $47,000 has been awarded to visual artists of every discipline: painters, fiber artists, printmakers, installation artists. Every penny of these grants has come from the sale of artist-made valentines.

To share in this project, send your valentines to:

THE ARTIST’S VALENTINE P.O. Box 501 Groton, MA 01450-0501

Include an index card with your name, address, phone number(s), email address, and "Artist 2011" on it. You will receive a grant competition entry form by the first week of March. Competition results will be emailed by the end of May.

Go to your studio and make Valentines!
