Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowship Program
The 2012 Nohl Fellowship application period has ended.
The Bradley Family Foundation administers the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists program. The program, funded by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund, has two components. The fellowship program provides unrestricted funds for Established and Emerging artists to create new work or complete work in progress. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Suitcase Export Fund for Visual Art was created to help artists with the cost of exhibiting their work outside the four-county area (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington). Both programs are open to practicing artists residing in the four-county area. Sixty fellowships have been awarded since the program began in 2003.
Three workshops will be offered to help prospective applicants better understand the application process. Polly Morris, executive director of the Lynden Sculpture Garden, who administers the fellowship program, will be joined by current and past Nohl Fellows at these informal sessions. The workshops are free and open to the public; guidelines and applications will be available at each session.
• Wednesday, September 5, 6-7:15 pm at Jazz Gallery, a Riverwest Community Art Center, 926 East Center Street. This session is co-sponsored by the Riverwest Artist Association.
• Saturday, September 8, 1-2:15 pm at Walker's Point Center for the Arts, 839 South 5th Street in Milwaukee. This session is co-sponsored by WPCA.
• Tuesday, September 18, 6-7:15 pm at the MARN Gallery, 5407 West Vliet Street. This session is co-sponsored by Milwaukee Artists’ Resource Network (MARN) and Wisconsin Visual Artists (WVA).
Nohl Fellows will be selected by a panel of recognized visual arts professionals working outside the four-county area: Lisa Dent, Independent Curator and faculty at Ohio State & Columbus College of Art and Design, Columbus; Astria Suparak, Director and Curator, Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh; and Irene Tsatsos, Chief Curator / Director of Gallery Programs at Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, California. In addition to receiving an award, Nohl Fellows will participate in an exhibition in the autumn of 2013. An exhibition catalogue will be published and disseminated nationally.
