Posted

Visual artists who dream of having the resources to push their craft to the next level have until Aug. 19 to apply for $25,000 fellowships from the Rhode Island Foundation.

The grants are considered to be among the largest no-strings-attached awards available to artists in the United States.

The Foundation will award grants to three emerging or mid-career visual artists through its Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowship Fund.

The awards are intended to free them to concentrate time on the creative process, focus on personal or professional development, expand their body of work and explore new directions. Applicants must be RI residents.

High school students, college and graduate students who are enrolled in a degree-granting program and visual artists who have advanced levels of career achievement are not eligible. The recipients will be selected by a panel of out-of-state jurors who are recognized practicing artists and arts professionals.
