Artists' fellowship inc.
The Artists' Fellowship, Inc. is a charitable foundation in New York City at 47 Fifth Avenue, which assists professional fine artists (painters, graphic artists, printmakers, sculptors) and their families in times of emergency, disability, or bereavement. The Artists' Fellowship's Board of Trustees and Officers all serve as volunteers in service to our community of artists. Assistance is given without expectation of repayment. One does not need to be a member of the Fellowship to receive assistance; neither does membership in the Artists' Fellowship entitle one to assistance from the foundation. Among their recognition awards are the Benjamin West Clinedinst Memorial Medal and the Gari Melchers Memorial Medal. Source: http://www.artistsfellowship.org/about.html
