FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 2015
In response to the changing needs of artists due to continued economic uncertainty and the increasing difficulty of leaving jobs, families and studios, in 2015 the CGCA will restructure a portion of the year to accommodate flexible, short-term and project-based residencies. This shift also responds, in part, to the strategic goal of WheatonArts to better serve artists while more fully integrating their activity with the visitor experience.
Up to four traditional three-month fellowships will be awarded for the Spring 2015. During the remainder of the year, CGCA will work to accommodate artists’ needs with custom fellowships of various lengths and flexible schedules. In addition to the three-month session, artists are encouraged to submit proposals ranging from standard six-week residencies (up to three to be awarded), to intermittent residencies (scheduled repeat visits), to short-term project support. Applicants are also encouraged to submit projects that include performance based work, short-term exhibits/ installations and use of the Museum of American Glass resources.
Due to the anticipated range of proposals, other than the Spring session, exact session dates will not be determined until after the peer-review jury concludes and projects/residencies are carefully aligned with studio and housing capacity. Short-term project-based residencies will be selected with preference for self-sufficient artists/teams and the public benefit offered.
Online applications will be available on May 2014 with a deadline of October 15, 2014.
