2021 Da Vinci Fellowships

2021 Da Vinci Fellowships

This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Inspired by the vision of Da Vinci Art Alliance’s founders, The Da Vinci Fellowship Program was created in 2018 to better serve the DVAA Membership and the evolving arts communities in Philadelphia. The Da Vinci Fellowship program builds off of DVAA’s founding mission to “build community through art” by annually supporting under-represented voices, innovative ideas, and underserved artists. The Da Vinci Fellowship Program has three distinct tracks that provide equitable opportunities for local creators by guiding them through the curatorial and exhibition process, resulting in an exhibition in DVAA’s gallery spaces. Fellows are encouraged to take risks, experiment, and pursue ambitious exhibition concepts and themes with the support of DVAA staff and resources. Proposed projects may explore a central theme, works from a common medium, showcase a specific community, or involve any number of collaborators.
