It’s easy with the COVID-19 crisis to put your life on hold, as it can feel like everything in the world is at a stand still.
Being a visual artist at a time like this can be especially tough, because jobs are scarce and opportunities to present new work are limited. But they’re not entirely nonexistent.
They’re selecting four artists to participate in the free, 12-week program. Chosen artists will receive a $15,000 grant, as well as individualized mentorship and coaching on how to maintain a sustainable art practice and succeed in the art industry.
The director of Fellowship.art, Maureen Ragalie, also serves as the current curator at Saint Kate Arts Hotel.
“By providing funding and mentoring to artists,” Ragalie says, “we can help support and grow Milwaukee’s vibrant arts community.”
The application deadline is May 15. Fellowship.art will be holding virtual information sessions and office hours for interested artists online leading up to the deadline.
