Program Description

In 2024, BAC welcomes their Emerging Artist Fellowship, running in two cohorts from May 2 to September 2, 2024 and July 8 to November 8, 2024. This fellowship is designed to offer a creative home to emerging artists as they transition and deepen their professional careers and artistic practice. With provided support from BAC, Emerging Artist Fellows will be able to devote uninhibited energy towards creativity. Fellows will be in a community of artists and culture workers from a broad range of disciplines, including Fall Multidisciplinary residents, local studio artists, BAC staff and board members, those presenting programs on campus and more! In addition, EA Fellows will be invited to participate in education and enrichment programs, curatorial planning, and peek into the “back-end” of art institutions.
