The Hamiltonian Artists Fellowship
The Hamiltonian Artists Fellowship serves as a steppingstone for visual artists who have an active practice and are seeking assistance in creating a sustainable professional art career. The fellowship program seeks to create a stimulating environment for continued artistic and professional growth.
Through a comprehensive suite of internal and public programming, field trips, one-on-one attention and support, and exhibition opportunities, all Hamiltonian Fellows gain valuable insight into contemporary art opportunities, while learning how to manage and promote their careers. They enjoy heightened visibility and access to grow their professional networks over the course of the two-year program. Fellows are expected to take active roles in their professional development, as well as that of the other Fellows in the program while also contributing to the DC art community at large.
The Fellowship remains a two-year opportunity that will now focus on providing professional development for working artists through a project-based model. Fellows will work to develop a single major project over the two years with guidance provided by mentors, Hamiltonian staff, peers, and other professional guests. Hamiltonian Artists will provide expertise and resources to frame development from project idea to exhibition. Together, we will help define the future of the field while providing the skills, knowledge, and resources to ensure the sustainability of independent artists as art professionals. Artists from anywhere are eligible to apply. Ideal candidates exhibit artistic vision and are at a point in their artistic career where they will significantly benefit from the professional development Hamiltonian Artists can provide.
