Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist Series

WLM 2007 Emerging Artist Series
Submission Deadline:
May 1, 2006

Exhibition Dates: May 17 - August 26, 2007

To support young, talented female artists in the region, MOCA produces an annual solo exhibition of an emerging woman artist under the age of 30 through The Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist Series. Established in 1998 and underwritten annually by Mr. and Mrs. Dan T. Moore, this series provides exhibiting artists with a scholarly catalogue and artist residency in partnership with Hawken School. Interested artists submit applications, which are reviewed by a committee.

This exhibition series was created in memory of Wendy L. Moore, an inspiring artist and native Clevelander who died in 1997 as the result of an accident. To continue Wendy's spirit, the Moore family sponsors an annual exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland devoted to furthering the career of a young female artist in our region. This opportunity includes a professionally mounted exhibition, a full-color, scholarly catalogue, and a substantial stipend for the artist. This series has helped to launch the professional careers of its recipients through exposure in the art world and advancing their opportunities to pursue future exhibitions, grants, and awards.

This series has also helped its recipients gain exposure in the art world and has opened up curatorial, grant and both regional and national exhibition opportunities. Mr. and Mrs. Dan T. Moore generously underwrite the Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist Series at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland annually.
