Delaware Division of the Arts - Individual Artist Fellowships 2016

DELAWARE DIVISION OF THE ARTS ANNOUNCES THE “AWARD WINNERS XVI” EXHIBITION
AT THE BIGGS MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Each year, the Biggs Museum of American Art, in partnership with the Delaware Division of the Arts, exhibits the work of Delaware’s Individual Artist Fellows. The Award Winners XVI exhibition, on view August 5 through October 23, recognizes the Fellows’ combined artistic accomplishments.

This year, the Division will recognize sixteen Delaware artists for the high quality of their artwork at the Award Winners XVI Reception and Award Ceremony on Saturday, October 1 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. This reception is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

The Division offers fellowships in the artistic disciplines of choreography, folk art, jazz, literature, media arts, music, and visual arts. Artists’ work samples are reviewed by nationally recognized out-of-state arts professionals, considering both demonstrated creativity and skill in the art form.

The awards—$3,000 for Emerging Artists, $6,000 for Established Professionals, and $10,000 for Masters—allow artists to pursue advanced training, purchase equipment and materials, or fulfill other needs that will help advance their careers.

The highest honor—the Masters Fellow—is reserved for those who meet rigorous criteria. Only one Masters Fellow can be awarded each year, and the disciplines rotate every three years.

To apply for the 2017 Individual Artist Fellowship, please visit www.artsdel.org/grants. Applications are due Monday, August 1 by 4:30 p.m.
