Pay Equity for Women Artists

The fight for gender and racial pay equity in the visual arts needs data. This survey will fill gaps in our understanding of the known disparities and help paint a more complete picture of the challenges we face. We encourage all artists to participate.

This survey is anonymous. We encourage you to answer with as much transparency as possible. No personally identifiable information is collected and none of this data will be shared for profit or other commercial use. We will be publishing the findings this fall on our website.

And, if you are a woman-identifying artist, please join us in raising your prices by 15% on March 24th, Equal Pay Day. Sign up at TheArtofEqualPay

Thank you for participating!

Michele Pred and Autumn Breon
