2022 Fellowship for Black Artists

2022 Fellowship for Black Artists

This Deadline Expired: Monday, March 14, 2022

The Philadelphia Fellowship for Black Artists was designed by Mural Arts in 2020 to fund, foster, and elevate the important work of emerging Black artists residing within the City of Philadelphia. 2022 fellows will have access to a robust public art curriculum including workshops on project planning, community engagement, mural design, and artist talks. Fellows will also have a unique opportunity to collaborate with community members and other fellows to create new work in public spaces.

This year, the Fellowship will support 15 artists of any medium with $2,000 in unrestricted funding. Selected applicants will show an interest in socially engaged art and working collaboratively. After completing curricular work, interested fellows will work in teams of three to respond to community-submitted public art requests. Fellows will receive an additional project-specific stipend for this work, and have project management support from Mural Arts staff. Mural Arts will highlight fellows across its social media channels, and connect them to a wide network of local and international artists. Fellows will also receive 1:1 portfolio consulting sessions by local curators, create proposals for public art projects, and learn about MAP’s community engaged art process from ideation to installation.

My interest in glass and found objects has allowed me to re-immerse myself in the world of toys, this time with a more mature twist. As I refer to my most sacred toys, I try to evoke universal images. There is a compelling irony as I create symbolic toys, which ask to be touched and manipulated, from glass, an extremely fragile material. I manipulate glass, recycle and integrate it with well-worn artifacts from the past, which are often perceived as useless in today's culture. This gives discarded items renewed purpose. As we interact tentatively with these objects they take us back to our most early memories while connecting us to other societies and eras.
