Jerome Emerging Artists Fellowship Information Session

Jerome Emerging Artists Fellowship Information Session
And Artist Talk
 
Grab a bite to eat and join Fellowship Director Kerry Morgan, Fellowship Coordinator Nathan Lewis, and two past fellows Pao Her and Sieng Lee for a discussion about the Jerome Emerging Artists fellowships.
 
This competitive fellowship provides $12,000 awards to five recipients annually. In addition, the fellows have the opportunity to meet with visiting critics over the course of the fellowship year, to have their work featured in a group exhibition in the MCAD Gallery, to have an essay written about their work that appears in the exhibition catalog, and to participate in a public panel discussion.
 
This discussion will highlight the foundation and program while offering application best practices. Artists Pao Her, 2013/14 fellow, and Sieng Lee, 2014/15 fellow, will discuss their work and experience as Jerome fellows. Finally we will open the floor up for questions.
