The HMS Visiting Artists Fellowship is a new initiative of Palm Beach State College made possible by a generous grant from the Helen M Salzberg family. The scholarship aims to provide support to contemporary visual artists in Palm Beach County and works in conjunction with Palm Beach State College’s Studio Art Program.
The HMS Visiting Artists Fellowship will provide an endowment of $6,000 to one selected artist per year and facilitate exposure and mentorship opportunities for that visiting artist. Selected artists will be responsible for fulfilling the following obligations:
· Selected artists will agree to donate a limited edition original work or print to the HMS Fine Arts Study Art Collection.
· Selected artists must deliver a talk for a group of students and/or a community engagement workshop on or off campus. Additional funds of $1,000 per event for the facilitation of a conference and/or community engagement workshop will be provided.
· Selected artists will be expected to make themselves available for on- or off-campus mentorship opportunities with HMS Student Arts Mentorship recipients totaling 50-100 hours.
· Selected artists must write an end-of-year summary of their activities for presentation to the HMS Visiting Artists Fellowship Committee.
· Selected artists will agree to participate in a Biennial at the HMS Fine Arts Gallery.
Artists from all media or levels of professional achievement should apply, but most importantly, the artist must be able to perform the required functions of the Fellowship as outlined above and the focus will be on their ability to provide opportunities mentorship to students at Palm Beach State College. The selection committee seeks to provide students with direct on-site professional experience and engagement and candidates with active studio and professional practices are preferred. Additionally, the ability to facilitate an on-campus student engagement workshop or conference will also be considered a high priority.
