Awarded annually to Los Angeles based artists, the City of Los Angeles Independent (COLA) Master Artist Project (IMAP) supports the creation of new works by a selection of the city’s most exemplary mid-career artists.

The Fellows were selected in three review-rounds by eight interdisciplinary peer panelists, including curators, educators, nonprofit gallerists, museum directors, and/or past fellows.

Grand Performances recently presented the following 2023 COLA IMAP Performing and Literary Fellows: performance artist and musician Daniel Corral, performing artist and choreographer/dancer Alia Mohamed, performance artist Jasmine Orpilla, and writer David Ulin.
