Artist Fellowship

About the Program

The Aspen Art Museum Artist Fellowship provides a mentored professional development opportunity for six artists (from emerging to established) working in Parachute, Rifle, Silt, New Castle, Glenwood Springs, Gypsum, Eagle, Edwards, Avon, Vail, Marble, Redstone, Carbondale, El Jebel, Basalt, Old Snowmass, Snowmass Village, and Aspen.

Providing recognition and support for artists interested in expanding their practice through exchange and mentorship, the nine-month Artist Fellowship group will meet for such opportunities as conversations with visiting artists and curators, presentations by AAM staff, and facilitated studio visits with their cohort.

Over the course of the fellowship, participating artists develop a creative project with the input of museum staff, culminating in the opportunity to present their work and share their creative process and experiences with the public at the end of the program through an artist talk, performance, demonstration, or other format. Each Artist Fellow receives an honorarium to help realize their project.
