The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are under-recognized by the field. The foundation seeks to stimulate creative inquiry to encourage new modes of thinking about art.
The foundation's Emerging Artist Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute was established in 2013 to provide an annual opportunity to an emerging visual artist age 25 or older who needs time and space to explore ideas and start new projects. Artist fellows will receive a one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, which includes a well-appointed room with private bath, a beautiful, well-lit studio space, and a $500 travel stipend.
Founded in 1985, the Santa Fe Art Institute provides an opportunity for emerging artists to pursue creative projects without interruption. SFAI supports more than fifty residents a year and offers a cohesive, arts-focused environment that creates the ideal working conditions for resident artists. Living and studio space is located within a nearly 17,000-square-foot complex designed by renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legoretta that allows residents to be as interactive or private as they wish. There are no requirements on the work produced during their time at SFAI.
One fellowship is awarded annually to an emerging artist who demonstrates strong artistic ability and promise, as well as an evolving practice that is at a pivotal moment in its development.
For complete program guidelines, information about previous fellowship recipients, and application instructions, see the Harpo Foundation website.
