Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowship Program

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. One hundred and one fellowships have been awarded since the program began in 2003.

Three public 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 new applicants as well as those who have applied in the past.

If you are unable to attend a workshop, you may watch a video recording of the September 4 workshop here:

The 2019 Nohl Fellows will be selected by an independent panel of three visual arts professionals working outside the four-county area. Over the twelve-month fellowship year, Nohl Fellows receive studio visits from curators and artists; an exhibition at the Haggerty Museum of Art opening in June 2019; an opportunity to present a public program; and an exhibition catalogue with a critical essay about each artist’s work.
