National Endowment for the Arts has selected Guild Hall in East Hampton to receive a $15,000 Art Works grant. The funding will support Guild Hall's Artist-in-Residence program.

"It is energizing to see the impact that the arts are making throughout the United States. These NEA-supported projects, such as this one to Guild Hall, are good examples of how the arts build stronger and more vibrant communities, improve well-being, prepare our children to succeed, and increase the quality of our lives," said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. "At the National Endowment for the Arts, we believe that all people should have access to the joy, opportunities and connections the arts bring."

Through NEA's first significant funding announcement for its 2018 fiscal year, over $25 million in grants were awarded. Art Works is the NEA's largest funding category. It backs programs that champion "the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and/or the strengthening of communities through the arts."

"We are thrilled to have the Guild House AIR program acknowledged by the National Endowment for the Arts," added Guild Hall Executive Director Andrea Grover. "The NEA award lends great weight to this mission-driven program which introduces extraordinary artists to our community."

The AIR program was founded in 2016 to offer a "foundation for creative development" for early-to-mid career artists, and a space where collaboration is nutured.

The Spring 2018 Guild House Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program will commence in April. Featured artists include Simone Bailey, Aviva Jaye, Siobhan O'Loughlin, Eva Schmidt, and Katherine Taylor.

Additionally, Guild Hall is looking for local youth who are interested in joining the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council (GHTAC). Open to ten teens per year, selected students will have the unique opportunity to serve as content producers, curators, and programmers. GHTAC meets once a week during which they offer input about potential programming. Participants also gain invaluable knowledge about a range of professional options and career paths

Applications are due April 30, 2018 for the September 2018-19 school year. The program is open to high school students 14 or older.
