Wyoming Arts Council

Visual Arts Fellowships

The 2018-2019 Biennial Fellowship Exhibition at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.

WHAT IS A VISUAL ARTS FELLOWSHIP?

Visual Arts Fellowships are $3,000 unrestricted awards of merit, based on the artist’s portfolio, honoring the work of Wyoming visual artists whose work reflects serious and exceptional aesthetic investigation. Artists working in any media, including film and video, may apply. Applications are juried by noted artists, curators, and others in the visual arts from outside the state. Up to three fellowships may be given each year, and jurors may also select honorable mentions.

Recipients of the Visual Arts fellowships exhibit their work in the Wyoming Arts Council Biennial Exhibit, held every two years at a major visual arts institution or museum in the state. The Wyoming Arts Council is now accepting applications for the Visual Arts Fellowships. Applications must be submitted online through CaFE where full details and eligibility requirements can be found. The deadline to apply is June 10, 2021.
