As VCCA reflects on its 50-year history and looks ahead to the next 50 years, we want to ensure that our community of artists reflects the diversity of the U.S. population. We are renewing our dedication to provide the gift of time and space for all eligible artists, including those who have been historically underrepresented at our artist residency programs.
ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIPS
Conceived during VCCA’s 50th anniversary year in 2021 and established in 2022, the 50th Anniversary Fund aims to provide free residencies for at least 50 artists of color who are new to VCCA.
Each 50th Anniversary Fellow will receive a free residency of up to two weeks at Mt. San Angelo, VCCA’s artist residency program in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. All VCCA residencies include a private studio, a separate private bedroom with en-suite bath, three prepared meals each day, and access to a community of more than 20 other artists in residence.
