THE GREATER MILWAUKEE FOUNDATION’S MARY L. NOHL FUND
FELLOWSHIPS FOR INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS 2017
June 8 – August 5, 2018
Opening reception June 7, 6 - 8 p.m.
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 fifteenth 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 includes new work by the 2017 Fellows, who were chosen from a field of 142 applicants by a panel of three jurors: Michelle Jacques, Chief Curator at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Canada; Allison Peters Quinn, Director of Exhibitions & Residency at the Hyde Park Arts Center, Chicago; and Gabriel Ritter, Curator and Head of Contemporary Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
The Nohl Fellowship program is administered in collaboration with the Bradley Family Foundation.
This exhibition is presented at the Haggerty Museum of Art in part through generous support from the Lacey Sadoff Foundation. Additional support for this exhibition and accompanying programs is generously provided by the Eleanor H. Boheim Endowment Fund, the Emmett J. Doerr Endowment Fund, a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin, and a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
