2020 Da Vinci Fellows Open Call

2020 Da Vinci Fellows Open Call

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, December 1, 2019

Founded by 9 Italian immigrant artists in 1931, Da Vinci Art Alliance (DVAA) has continuously served as a space of creative refuge.

Inspired by the vision of DVAA founders, The Da Vinci Fellowship Program was created in 2018 to better serve the DVAA Membership and the evolving arts communities throughout Philadelphia. The two tracks funded by the Joseph Robert Foundation are named for founding member, Severo Antonelli, and local arts leader, Kathryn Pannepacker. The Da Vinci Fellowship program builds off of our founding mission by annually supporting Philadelphia-based artists, curators and DVAA members. This opportunity opens up our space to perspectives and artists who could not otherwise afford our rental fees. These fellowship tracks further open DVAA’s doors to under-represented voices, innovative ideas, and artistic exploration.
