Fellowships for Individual Artists 2016
June 9 – July 31, 2016
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists program annually awards unrestricted funds to emerging and established local artists to support the creation of new work, or the completion of work in progress. Now in its thirteenth cycle, the program makes a significant investment in the greater Milwaukee arts community, encouraging artists to live and make work here. The Fellowships also create—through the jurying process and culminating exhibition—an opportunity to promote local artistic production to a national audience.
This exhibition included new work by the 2015 Fellows, who were chosen from a field of 158 applicants by a panel of three jurors: Jamillah James, Assistant Curator, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Eric May, Executive Director, Roots & Culture Contemporary Art Center, Chicago; and Jodi Throckmorton, Curator of Contemporary Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), Philadelphia.
The Nohl Fellowship program is administered in collaboration with the Bradley Family Foundation. The exhibition was curated by Nicholas Frank.
Presentation of this exhibition at the Haggerty Museum of Art is made possible through generous support from PNC Bank.
