THE GREATER MILWAUKEE FOUNDATION’S MARY L. NOHL FUND
FELLOWSHIPS FOR INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS
June 8 – September 17, 2017
Opening reception June 7, 6 – 8 p.m.
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists program annually awards unrestricted funds to emerging and established local artists to support the creation of new work, or the completion of work in progress. Now in its fourteenth cycle, the program makes a significant investment in the greater Milwaukee arts community, encouraging artists to live and make work here. The Fellowships also create—through the jurying process and culminating exhibition—an opportunity to promote local artistic production to a national audience.
This exhibition includes new work by the 2016 Fellows, who were chosen from a field of 151 applicants by a panel of three jurors: JoAnne Northrup, Curatorial Director and Curator of Contemporary Art, Nevada Museum of Art, Reno; Valerie Cassel Oliver, Senior Curator at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; and Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Director and Chief Curator, DePaul Art Museum, Chicago.
