The Fellowship Program grant category honors an assortment of Los Angeles’ best contemporary artists. The awards allow accomplished artists to create new work while DCA organizes a museum exhibition, performing arts showcase, and an online catalog to document and market the selected artists and their new works as one cross-section of the exciting Los Angeles art scene.
- To honor a spectrum of the City’s most creative artists who are each dedicated to an ongoing body of excellent work, who represent a relevant progression through their pieces or series and exemplify a generation of core ideas in their field, who are respected by their peers and are role models for other artists because of their distinguished record.
- To support artists who want to attempt new work with increased freedom to innovate and experiment. 2017-18 Fellowships will be offered in the disciplines of design/visual arts (including architecture, graphic design and product design such as fashion design), literary arts (poetry or fiction) and performing arts (including choreography-dance, music and multi-disciplinary/theatre).
Individual artists who meet the eligibility requirements for both the Fellowship and Artist in Residence Programs may apply for both with category-appropriate projects, but should consider the time commitment required of each possible contractual obligation.
