California Community Foundation Fellowships for Visual Artists Opportunity

The California Community Foundation will award $260,000 in Fellowships for Visual Artists to 14 Los Angeles individual artists. Ten fellowships at $20,000 each will be awarded to mid-career artists and four fellowships at $15,000 each will be awarded to emerging artists.

For more than 90 years, CCF has recognized, encouraged and supported the Southern California arts community by funding and nurturing a full range of artistic expressions. The Fellowships for Visual Artists is designed to support local artists in advancing to the next level of professional development. The fellowships draw together the J. Paul Getty Trust Fund for the Visual Arts, the Brody Arts Fund, the Joan Palevsky Endowment for the Future of Los Angeles and other CCF funds.

The guidelines and a "how to apply" workshop schedule for the 2009 fellowships are on our Web site, www.calfund.org. The application deadline is Friday, March 6, 2009. This year, applications will only be accepted online. All applicants must submit both images and a completed application via www.callforentry.org.

For more information, please contact Program Assistant Richard Ruiz at rruiz@ccf-la.org or (213) 413-4130.
