The Minneapolis College of Art and Design is accepting applications for the 2017-18 Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists.
Through the program, five grants of $12,000 each will be awarded to emerging Minnesota artists. Fellowships may be used to purchase materials, cover the production costs of artwork, and/or 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 his/her work, and the opportunity to partake in a public panel discussion.
Artists considered for 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. To be eligible, however, applicants must be in the early stages of their careers and have not yet attained professional acknowledgement commensurate with the quality of their work.
MCAD will begin accepting applications on July 14.
