The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as artists over a significant period of time. The Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and financial need, whether professional, personal or both.

Since its inception in 1985, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation has awarded over 4,100 grants totaling over 65 million dollars to artists in 77 countries.

This fall, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation gave Joelle Dietrick an award to support her studio production during the 2016–2017 academic year before she goes to Hamburg, Germany for her Fulbright Global Award April to July 2016. As part of this award, she will travel to Santiago, Chile and Hong Kong, China the following two winter breaks. Her work was also in a group exhibition called “Paper" at the Long View Gallery, Washington DC October 27 - November 27, 2016 and on the cover of a 2016 Routledge book by Thomas Birtchnell and John Urry called A New Industrial Future. Dietrick is an Assistant Professor of Art and Digital Studies at Davidson College. More info at
