The Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship
The Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship program was established in 2004 to reward creativity and to encourage emerging and established individual artists by supporting their artistic development while increasing awareness of contemporary art in the Midwest.
The fellowship program currently awards $25,000 to selected fellows. It has distributed more than $1,000,000 to 55 contemporary Midwestern visual artists since its inception.
Fellowship categories are restricted to installation, sculpture, and new media. Selection criteria includes the following:
- Quality and skill
- Creativity and uniqueness
- Commitment to developing work
- Impact the award will have on the artist’s career
To be eligible, artists must:
- Be age 25 or older
- Be a resident of either Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin
- Commit to residing in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin for the duration of the fellowship
Fellows are chosen by a five-member selection committee through a blind selection process.
The details and the timeline for the next round of Efroymson Contemporary Art Fellowships are still being finalized, the link for the application will be posted here when the next round is available.
