Through the Artful Seeds Artists Fellowship, The Art Connection provides non-profits a direct hands-on experience with an artist, introducing them to the full cycle of art – ideation, physical making and exhibition – over a six-month period.
The Art Connection commissions the artist’s work, and ensures permanent location at the non-profit’s space. The total value of these services going to the non-profit agency is $9,600, with $6,000 of that total value paid directly to the artist.
The Art Connection awards fellowships each year to qualified and talented visual artists. Artists will receive a monetary award of $4,500 to develop their project and an additional $1,500 is allotted to purchase supplies and cover other costs. Professional development and growth opportunities will also be provided throughout the six-month fellowship.
The Artist Fellow will:
– Create custom works for the non-profit’s space
– Lead art workshops with their community members
– Take groups on a field visit to a Boston-area gallery or museum to get a fuller, more diverse art experience.
We’ve been hard at work with Artist Fellow Cicely Carew and Agency Partner Bay Cove for our current cycle of the fellowship. Be sure to follow our social media and subscribe to our E-News for updates.
