Since 1981, this fellowship program has significantly advanced, artistically and critically, emerging visual artists in Minnesota.
The 2018/19 fellowship application cycle is now open and will close on Friday, September 14, 2018 at noon. The culminating exhibition for the 2017/18 fellowship recipients will open in MCAD Gallery on Friday, October 5 and run through Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
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 four grants of $10,000 each to early career Minnesota artists. Fellowships may be used to purchase materials, cover the production costs of new 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 612.874.3667 for more information.
About the Jerome Foundation
The Jerome Foundation, created by artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill (1905-1972), seeks to contribute to a dynamic and evolving culture by supporting the creation, development, and production of new works by emerging artists. The Foundation makes grants to not-for-profit arts organizations and artists in Minnesota and New York City.
Nurturing exploration and experimentation by emerging artists diversifies the seeds of creativity and leads to rich experiences. Central to the Foundation’s review of each proposal is an assessment of the quality of the artistic work. The Foundation seeks to encourage the potential for excellence.
