Foundation / Corporation
School for Advanced Research (SAR) - Indian Arts Research Center (IARC)
Fellowship of $3,000 per month to a USA, Canada, or Mexico established or emerging indigenous woman artist for the opportunity to develop her creativity and pursue artistic growth in any media. Funding includes the monthly stipend, as well as housing, supplies allowance, studio space, and travel reimbursement to and from SAR (School for Advanced Research).
This fellowship provides time for the artist to explore new avenues of creativity, to grapple with new ideas to further advance their work, and to strengthen existing talents. The fellowship supports diverse creative disciplines and can include sculpture, performance, basketry, painting, printmaking, digital art, mixed media, photography, pottery, writing, and film and video.
The Artist fellow must live on the SAR campus, complete a project resulting in the creation of one or more works, and make a public presentation at the end of their fellowship. While in residence, the artist can access the IARC collection of Native arts for research and study. Additionally, SAR would like to see the fellow’s work represented in the object, archives, or photo collection; therefore, IARC requests the donation of a single piece created while working at SAR. If selected for the fellowship, the artist must agree to participate in interviews, photo sessions, video recordings, and exit interviews to document the fellow’s process and progress. This information will be entered into the IARC archives to serve as a permanent public record.
