Harpo Foundation, National Call for Applicants: Emerging Artist Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute (NM) with travel stipend
Deadline: November 1st, 2017
From their call: The Harpo Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute is a prestigious, singular award established in 2013 to provide an emerging visual artist with strong artistic ability and an evolving practice, the space and time to explore ideas and start new projects in a residency context at a pivotal moment in their professional development.
Eligibility: Self-defined under-recognized visual artists who are not currently enrolled in a degree program may submit proposals on their own behalf. To determine whether an artist is “under-recognized” we look at an artist’s resume and overall presence in the field. If we see that the artist has already achieved a certain amount of prominence and recognition because they have (1) presented their work at venues such as major museums, art centers, international biennales, (2) received multiple notable awards and grants, (3) enjoy the representation of a prominent commercial gallery, we would likely not consider them to be “under-recognized” by the field. As a general rule, the HARPO Foundation prefers that their funding go toward providing opportunities and encouragement to artists who have yet to receive this level of support.
25 years and older
Visual Artist* (e.g., Painting, Illustration, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking)
*Creative writing, dance, theater, film, digital/new media, performance art, and site specific installation art fall outside the purview of the HARPO Foundation. However, a proposal with an interdisciplinary approach may be considered as long as it has a strong visual art component.
Artists who are students at the time of the application deadline are not eligible.
The annual Artist Fellow receives a one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, which includes a fully-furnished private room and bath, communal kitchen, dining room and lounge, semi-private studio space and shared work areas, basic tools and discounted use of MAKE Santa Fe facilities, access to exhibition/event space, contemporary art library, laundry facilities, bicycles, basic foodstuffs, and a $500 travel stipend.
Costs include a $35 application fee. All materials, equipment, and other expenses are the responsibility of the Fellow.
