Utah Artist Opportunity: The Beer is Weak, but this Fellowship Ain’t


Any readers located in Utah?  If so you might be interested in this visual art opportunity, but giddy-up the deadline closes in mere weeks.  This artist fellowship is interesting to me because instead of the dreaded committee, the decider is only one person.

$10,000 for Visual Arts Excellence in Utah

Fellowships are available for individual artists practicing crafts, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, artist’s bookmaking, and working in new genres, conceptual arts and video. Fellowship grants do not require matching funds.

Applying artists must demonstrate professionalism in their art through quality images and documentation. Artists must be Utah residents not enrolled in a degree or certificate-granting program.

Deadline: September 11, 2009

Download Application Here

As of 2006, all applicants for Utah Arts Council grants and fellowships must register for a Dun and Bradstreet (DUNS) number. This number is free and IS used as an important advocacy tool for the arts.
