Headlands Center for the Arts Invites Applications for Bay Area Fellowship Program

Headlands Center for the Arts Invites Applications for Bay Area Fellowship Program

This Deadline Expired: Friday, March 19, 2021

The Headlands Center for the Arts is a multidisciplinary, international arts center dedicated to supporting artists, the creative process, and the development of new, innovative ideas and artwork. The campus comprises a cluster of artist-rehabilitated military buildings just north of the Golden Gate Bridge at historic Fort Barry in the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

The center currently is inviting applications for the inaugural cohort of its Bay Area Fellowship Program (BAF). The program seeks to engage individual artists as a full collaborator in designing and producing his/her own fellowship engagement, bringing them into the Headlands community as thought partners while developing an experience tailored to their specific needs. Applicants will work closely and deeply with their fellowship cohort and Headlands staff to iteratively design the vision, aims, schedule, scope, and allocation of resources for their fellowship. In short, fellows will partner with Headlands to shape the nature of its support. Fellows may work in any artistic discipline, including arts professionals and all writing disciplines.

Fellowships are intended to last two years and will be planned in close collaboration with participants on annual timelines. The program will initially support three Bay Area artists. In addition to providing access as needed to Headlands resources such as studios, meeting spaces, and staff expertise, support includes an annual stipend of $15,000 and additional financial resources to cover the tax burden of the stipend, health insurance, and activities and resources such as professional and project development, fabrication, or assistance with travel expenses.

Artists at all stages of their careers are welcome to apply, but preference will be given to mid-career and established artists in developing the inaugural (2021-22) fellowship cohort.

To be eligible, applicants must be able to prove current and continuous residence in the Bay Area, beginning no later than July 1, 2019. The Bay Area is defined as the following nine counties in California: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. Applicants will be asked for proof of residence if invited to the full application stage.

Jennifer Baker is a visual artist working in varied media including: painting, monotype, sculpture, and installation. Her images of Northern Liberties document the changes in that Philadelphia neighborhood over a period of 30 years, from the fires and the wrecking balls of the 1980s and 90s to the runaway construction of the 2000s. Other images explore the central Pennsylvania town of Centralia where an underground fire has burned in a coal seam for over 50 years. These pieces have a roughness and immediacy in their execution that matches their subject matter. Her life size sculptures and installation pieces show another side of her interests, and most recently she has been working on a series of drawings documenting her life in the time of coronavirus. All of these pieces have in common an interest in narrative and a sense of place and memory.
