Wyoming Arts Council Now Accepting Fellowship Applications

 

The Wyoming Arts Council is now accepting applications for fellowships in Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Creative Writing, and the newly established Native Art Fellowship. Fellowships are open to Wyoming residents, and are merit-based awards.

 

Applications are juried by noted artists and professionals in the field who are from outside the state. The deadline to apply to all fellowships is June 10. All fellowship recipients will receive a $3,000 unrestricted award as well as an opportunity to showcase their work in the state. 

The Visual Arts Fellowships are selected based on the artist’s portfolio and honoring work that reflects serious and exceptional investigation. Artists working in any medium may apply. Up to three fellowships may be given each year. Applications must be submitted online through CaFE . The jurors for this year’s Visual Arts Fellowships are Tasha Kubesh, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, N.D. and Louise Martorano, Executive Director of RedLine, a non-profit contemporary art center and residency located in Denver, Colo.

 

The Performing Arts Fellowships are given to honor excellence in the artists' field and are based on appropriate media samples and artist statements. Up to four fellowships may be awarded; two in the category of Music and two in the category of Theatre and Dance. Artists may only apply in one category (Music or Theatre and Dance) and applications must be submitted online through Submittable. The juror for this year’s Performing Arts Fellowship in Theatre and Dance is Kate Jopson, a theatre, film, and voice-over director and producer based in Los Angeles, Calif. The juror for Music is Kenzi Everitt, Founder and Creative Director of Lady Cactus Media in Denver, Colo. 

 

The Creative Writing Fellowships are awards of merit, based on a writer’s body of work, and honoring Wyoming’s literary artists whose work demonstrates exceptional writing. One fellowship will be awarded in each category of Poetry, Creative Nonfiction, and Fiction, for a total of up to three fellowships. Writers may only submit in one category and applications must be submitted online through Submittable. The jurors for this year’s Creative Writing Fellowships are Jessica Jacobs from Asheville, NC for the Poetry category, Kailyn McCord from Oakland, Calif  for the Creative Nonfiction category, and Kali Fajardo-Anstine from Denver, Colo. for the Fiction category.

 

The Native Art Fellowship is an award of merit open to Native artists based within Wyoming, across any artistic discipline or medium (visual, literary, performing, folk & traditional, etc.) This fellowship is designed to raise the profiles of the highly talented Native artists in Wyoming and celebrate their artistry. One fellowship will be awarded and applications must be submitted online through Submittable. For the fellowship's inaugural year, the two jurors will be Molina Parker (Lakota), of Red Shirt, S.D. and Adrienne Benjamin (Anishinaabe) of Isle, Minn.

Wyoming Arts Council Announces new Native Art Fellowship

Wyoming Arts Council Announces new Native Art Fellowship

The Wyoming Arts Council is pleased to announce a new initiative: a Native Art Fellowship.

For years, the Wyoming Arts Council has hosted annual fellowships for the visual, literary, and performing arts that are merit-based and juried by professionals from outside the state.

This year, the Arts Council is also offering a Native Art Fellowship. Structured similarly to the other fellowships, the Native Art Fellowship is an unrestricted $3,000 award that is open to Native artists based within Wyoming, across any artistic discipline or medium (visual, literary, performing, folk & traditional, etc.) This fellowship is designed to raise the profiles of the highly talented Native artists in Wyoming and celebrate their artistry. 

This fellowship was partially inspired by a presentation at the 2019 Wyoming Arts Summit in Cheyenne from Abi Whiteing (Blackfeet) and Catherine Bryan (Navajo) of the First Nations Development Institute.

Their presentation focused on the ways that Native communities and causes, including Native artists, have been under-supported by philanthropic organizations and grantmaking, as outlined in their publication, “We Need to Change How We Think: Perspectives on Philanthropy’s Underfunding of Native Communities and Causes.” The Native Art Fellowship will serve as another step in the Wyoming Arts Council’s initiative towards equitable grantmaking practices. 

For the fellowship's inaugural year, the two jurors will be Molina Parker (Lakota), of Red Shirt, SD, and Adrienne Benjamin (Anishinaabe) of Isle, MN. 

The Wyoming Arts Council would like to thank the  many partners who assisted in the development of the Native Art Fellowship, including Hunter Old Elk (Crow & Yakama) of the Plains Indian Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, artist Robert Martinez (Northern Arapaho), Lorre Hoffman with Makerspace 307, and Sharon Dynak and Tracey Kikut with the Ucross Foundation. 

Further information can be found on the Arts Council website,wyomingartscouncil.org. The application and a complete list of eligibility requirements can be found on Submittable. Applications for the Native Art Fellowship will be accepted from April 15 - June 10.
