NewCourtland Artist Fellowship

Deadline: March 1, 2013 (ONLINE)

NewCourtland Artist Fellowship
Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA)

Philadelphia, PA

The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA), in partnership with NewCourtland, is pleased to offer Philadelphia area artists the opportunity to participate in an exciting, community-based fellowship. Through the NewCourtland Artist Fellowship, visual artists will be selected to bring innovative and engaging art-making to seniors in sites throughout Philadelphia.

In order to apply, artists are asked to develop an intergenerational project that brings members of the New Courtland together with school age children/teens to create a meaningful experience and an high quality artistic project. Work created by seniors and their school-aged partners during the 2013 Fellowship Program will be exhibited with the work of the artist fellows in a large, well publicized exhibition entitled Art is Ageless.

Accepted artists will receive a fellowship award of $2,500. Once artists receive this award they will be responsible for conducting ten 1.5 hour workshops, attending one sensitivity training session and participating in the Art is Ageless exhibition in Spring/Summer 2014.

Artists will also be separately compensated for purchasing all necessary art supplies and professionally presenting the artwork created in their program for the final exhibition.
