Applications are now being accepted for 2016/2017 Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists. Artists may work in a variety of visual art media, including both traditional and new media. 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.
Five grants of $12,000 each will be awarded. Fellowships may be used to purchase materials, cover the production costs of artwork, and supplement living or travel costs. During the 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.
The program is administered by the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Deadline to apply is noon on Friday, September 23, 2016. For more information and to apply, go to http://mcad.edu/about-mcad/fellowships/.
