The Explorers Club "Artists In Exploration" Program Seeking Applications for Awards

By Kim Swidler

The Explorers Club (www.explorers.org) is now accepting applications from both members and non-members for its new "Artists in Exploration" program, underwritten by Rolex Watch, USA. This is a rare chance for artists to be funded for particular works while working in the field - whether it be photography, music, painting, sculpture, or other art form. A total of $25,000 will be distributed among the 2012 winners.

Headquartered in Manhattan and founded in 1904, the Explorer Club's members have been responsible for an illustrious series of famous firsts: to the North Pole, to the South Pole, to the summit of Mount Everest, to the deepest point in the ocean, and to the surface of the moon.

The deadline for submissions is 5:00PM EDT on July 20th, 2012.

Those interested may contact Executive Director Matt Williams for an application at mwilliams@explorers.org or by calling 212-628-8383.
