MINT believes in paying artists for their creativity through our W.A.G.E. stipends. Please donate and help us to continue supporting Atlanta's emerging artists.

About the Project

MINT is the first WAGE-certified organization in Georgia! Help keep us certified!



MINT believes that art brings the world to life. In this spirit, we serve artists and arts enthusiasts through our residency program, exhibitions, community partnerships, and other outreach. We invite risk taking, encourage curiosity, and advance brilliant and challenging work.

W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) is a national organization focused on regulating the payment of artist fees by nonprofit art institutions and establishing a sustainable model for best practices between artists and the institutions that contract their labor. Their current roster of organizations includes The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, MOMA, The Guggenheim, and now, MINT. 

MINT is the first W.A.G.E.-certified organization in Georgia, a state with has the 49th lowest per capita arts funding in the U.S. (National Assembly of Arts Agencies), which means the burden of paying artists falls on organizations like ours. W.A.G.E. certification has propelled us to be an even more integral part of Georgia’s arts ecosystem. Many of the artists we serve create non-commercial work that is ephemeral, performative, and experiential. We believe that staying W.A.G.E. certified will continue to allow these artists who are not able to rely on the sale of artwork to make a living wage for their time working through the creative process and producing art. This commitment to investing in artists will also help us attract top-tier talent that will enliven Atlanta’s arts community. Over the course of a year, MINT will pay close to $35,000 in W.A.G.E. stipends to our interns ($5000), our exhibiting artists ($20,000) and our Leap Year artists ($8750).
 

Thank you for supporting emerging artists in Atlanta. Your generous donations will allow us to continue to pay artists a living wage and keep the W.A.G.E.-certification we've worked so hard to reach.
