VISUAL ARTISTS FELLOWSHIP GUIDELINES
Applications for the 2020-2021 Visual Arts Fellowship must be completed and submitted electronically on or before 11:59 pm February 1, 2020. The application fee is $57. All applications must be submitted online.
Fellowship: The Fine Arts Work Center provides seven-month Fellowships to ten emerging artists and ten emerging writers each year from Oct.1 through April 30. Visual Arts Fellows are provided with a private, furnished apartment, a separate work studio of approximately 400 sq ft and a monthly stipend of $1000, as well as an additional $1,000 exit stipend.
Eligibility: The Fellowship is open to all emerging visual artists creating two-dimensional, three-dimension and time-based work. Applicants are judged on the quality of their work. The jury disqualifies applicants it deems to be already emerged. Tenure track professors in Fine Arts who are on sabbaticals are considered ineligible.
Collaborative teams may apply under one application and if selected they will only be awarded one Fellowship to share. Applicants who would like to apply as an individual artist as well as part of a collaborative team may do so if these two bodies of work are completely different and distinctive.
Artists must be in residence during their Fellowships. Absences may not exceed more than fourteen consecutive days or total more than thirty days during the seven-month Fellowship. Please consider any personal or professional commitments you have made or anticipate before applying. The Fine Arts Work Center welcomes family members and partners of Fellows during the Fellowship Term. There is one pet-friendly apartment available for a Visual Artist.
International applicants are welcome to apply. The Fine Arts Work Center actively seeks applicants from all backgrounds, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, disability, HIV status or veteran status.
