Native Arts & Cultures Foundation announces 2017 Mentor Artist Fellowship Awards
2017 is the first year of the NACF Mentor Artist Fellowship, which was open to Native American and Alaska Native artists in three regions of the United States: the Pacific Northwest, Southwest and Upper Midwest, and in the categories of Traditional and Contemporary Visual arts. More than 100 applications were reviewed by a panel of art peers and professionals.
Beginning in July, the awarded artists will mentor their selected emerging American Indian or Alaska Native artist apprentice for one year. This fellowship requires a joint mentor/apprentice art project at the completion of the one-year mentoring.
The next call for submissions for the NACF Mentor Artist Fellowship will be in the fall.
