The online application for the 2017/18 Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists is now open. The deadline for applying is Friday, September 15, 2017, at noon.
Artists considered for these fellowships may work in a variety of visual art media, including both traditional and new media. The program is aimed at visual artists who can present their work in a gallery context, and eligible applicants must be in the early stages of their careers and have not yet attained professional acknowledgment commensurate with the quality of their work. MCAD and the Jerome Foundation welcome applications from artists representing diverse cultural perspectives.
An independent jury of three arts professionals competitively awards five grants of $12,000 each to emerging Minnesota artists. Fellowships may be used to purchase materials, cover the production costs of artwork, and supplement living or travel costs. During the twelve-month fellowship year, each artist receives three studio visits from professional critics, access to technical assistance, a culminating exhibition at the MCAD Gallery, a catalog with a critical essay on each artist’s work, and the opportunity to partake in a public panel discussion.
This program is administered by the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Contact Kerry Morgan, program director, at email@example.com or 612.874.3667 for more information.
Are you or do you know a media artist at a career stage beyond emerging and whose work is of exceptional artistic merit? Applications are open for four $25,000 fellowships to Minnesota filmmakers, screenwriters and other media artists.
The application deadline is March 6th. Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) Minnesota administers the McKnight Fellowships in Media Arts on behalf of the McKnight Foundation. For more information:
