Robert Sterling Clark Fellowships: Call for Nominees

The Robert Sterling Clark Foundation Fellowships at the Vermont
Studio Center are being established to support the development of
international artists and to broaden their opportunities for
intercultural dialogue here in the United States. Read the press
release here.

In 2011, five artists from Africa will arrive in Johnson, Vermont to
spend two months working at the Vermont Studio Center with 70 other
artists in residence, providing all the participants with an exciting
opportunity for exchange and dialogue in the largest artists’
residency program in the United States. When their eight-week studio
program finishes in Vermont, the artists spend a week in NYC with the
Triangle Artists Workshop going to studios, galleries and museums and
meeting New Yorkers.

Artists living on the African continent may apply by April 1 for a
2011 residency. To learn more about the fellowship, or to download an
application, please visit our website. For additional fellowship and
application information, please contact David Grozinsky at

Please forward this e-mail to individual artists, museums or
university contacts who may want to nominate an artist for this
competition. In addition, we would be happy to hear from you or your
colleagues to nominate artists. Please encourage artists to visit our
website for more information or to download an application.

Thank you for your help in sharing this opportunity.
