Description: This Fellowship program was established in 2011 to support the development of visual artists and the potential for inter-cultural dialog. Each year, the Foundation awards two residency fellowships to Native American visual artists at the Vermont Studio Center. Each Fellow receives a one-month residency, which includes room and board, a private studio, and a $500 travel stipend.
Founded by artists in 1984, the Vermont Studio Center is the largest international artists’ and writers’ Residency Program in the United States, hosting 50 visual artists and writers each month from across the country and around the world. The Studio Center provides 4–12 week residencies on an historic 30 building campus along the Gihon River in Johnson, Vermont, a village in the heart of the northern Green Mountains.
Two fellowships are awarded annually to Native American Visual Artists who demonstrate:
- Strong artistic ability
- An evolving practice this is at a pivotal moment in its development
- A practice that engages a dialogue between the artist’s indigenous world and the surrounding culture
