“This fellowship is an excellent way to recognize the exceptional work of indigenous artists in Wyoming. We are hoping that with some additional outreach, we can help spread the word about this program,” said Kimberly Mittelstadt, Creative Arts Specialist for the Wyoming Arts Council.  

The Native Art Fellowship is awarded based on the artist’s portfolio and is open across various artistic disciplines, including visual, literary, performing, folk, and traditional arts. Its primary aim is to elevate the visibility of Wyoming’s remarkably skilled Native artists and commend their creative endeavors. This fellowship is open exclusively to residents of Wyoming.  Up to two $5,000 fellowships will be awarded. 

Noted Native artists from outside the state will evaluate all applications. Applications must be submitted online through Submittable. Serving as jurors for this year are Ben Pease and Dakota Hoska.

Recipients of the Native Art Fellowship will also be given support to find a venue to showcase their work.

Additional information can be found on the Arts Council website. Complete eligibility requirements can be found on Submittable. For more information, contact Kimberly Mittelstadt at the Arts Council, 307-274-6673 or kimberly.mittelstadt@wyo.gov.
