Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowship Program

The Lynden 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 and Black Box 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. One hundred and eleven fellowships have been awarded since the program began in 2003.

A virtual workshop will be offered to help prospective applicants better understand the application process. Polly Morris, executive director of the Lynden, who administers the fellowship program, will be joined by current Nohl Fellows at this informal session. The workshop is open to new applicants as well as those who have applied in the past.

• Wednesday, September 8, 2021, 6-7:30 pm. The workshop is free, but you must register in advance. Click here to watch a recording of the workshop.

Morris will also offer three virtual Q&A sessions on Zoom.

The 2022 Nohl Fellows will be selected by an independent panel of three visual arts professionals working outside the four-county area. While the current public health situation makes it difficult to predict which parts of the program will be in-person, the eighteen-month fellowship period will include studio visits from curators and artists; an exhibition at the Haggerty Museum of Art; an opportunity to present a public program; and an exhibition catalogue with a critical essay about each artist’s work.
