Harpo Foundation invites applications for Emerging Artist Fellowship

The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation's Emerging Artist Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute was established in 2013 to provide an annual opportunity to an emerging visual artist who is at least 25 years old and who needs time and space to explore ideas and start new projects. One fellowship is awarded annually to an emerging artist who demonstrates strong artistic ability and promise, as well as an evolving practice at a pivotal moment in his or her development. Artist fellows receive a one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, which includes a well-appointed room with private bath, well-lit studio space, and a $500 travel stipend. The application deadline is July 5. Complete program guidelines and applications instructions are available online. The Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support under-recognized artists. The foundation seeks to stimulate creative inquiry and encourage new modes of thinking about art. Founded in 1985, the Santa Fe Art Institute provides a unique opportunity for emerging artists to pursue creative projects without interruption. SFAI supports more than 50 residents per year and offers a cohesive, arts-focused environment that creates the ideal working conditions for resident artists. There are no requirements on the work produced during an artist's time at SFAI. Via: Harpo Foundation
