Organizer’s Site

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG), and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation (BAPF) are pleased to present the 2016 City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artists Fellowships.

Awarded annually by DCA, the C.O.L.A. Fellowships support the creation of new works by a selection of the City’s most exemplary mid-career artists. The C.O.L.A. exhibition honors these creative visionaries and nurtures the symbiotic relationship between LA, its artists, its history, and its identity as an international arts capital.

Chosen by a team of experts, the 2016 C.O.L.A. award recipients in the visual arts include: Paolo Davanzo, Marsian De Lellis, Keiko Fukazawa, Megan Geckler, Won Ju Lim, Blue McRight, Sandeep Mukherjee, Christine Nguyen, and Jim Skuldt. The 2016 C.O.L.A. award recipients in literature are Sarah Maclay, Claudia Rodriguez, and Lynne Thompson. Each artist will present new work created specifically for C.O.L.A. with a $10,000 grant awarded by DCA.

DCA will present Conversations with the Artists, which is designed to give audiences the opportunity to engage directly with featured artists in an informal setting.
