First Day of Exhibit: July 1, 2022


One artist will be awarded a $10,000 grant, to be presented in conjunction with a virtual exhibit of the artist’s work. We seek to support artists who already have an existing body of spiritual art and have potential for further growth but lack the means to evolve, either because of lack of external support or finances.


MOFSA’s 2022 exhibit will be a permanent virtual presentation and will feature the work of the grant recipient, including a new work not previously shown elsewhere. The exhibit will also include the work of selected other artists who submit for the grant, who will share equally in $2000 of additional awards. All artwork shown at the exhibit must be original.  All artists whose work is shown in the exhibit are expected to comply with the legal agreement in the call on the CaFE website.

For an example of a MOFSA virtual art presentation, see the presentation for the 2020 grant recipient
