Now Accepting Applications for the 

2019 HARPO Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute

The HARPO Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute is a prestigious award established in 2013 to provide an emerging visual artist with strong artistic ability and an evolving practice, the space and time to explore ideas and start new projects in a residency context at a pivotal moment in their professional development.

The HARPO EmergingArtist Fellow receives: 

$500 travel stipend A one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute A private room and bath A semi-private studio space Access to common facilities and basic tools Breakfast food items Two communal meals 

The residency will take place in September, October, or November 2019. The HARPO Emerging Artist Fellow is not required to engage the 2019 residency theme, “Truth & Reconciliation,” but may do so at their discretion. Ultimately, the semi-structured programming and unique environment at SFAI allows the Artist Fellow to be as interactive or private as they wish with other residents.

*To determine whether an artist is “under-recognized” the selection committee looks at an artist’s resume and overall presence in the field. If they see that the artist has already achieved a certain amount of prominence and recognition because they have (1) presented their work at venues such as major museums, art centers, international biennales, (2) received multiple notable awards and grants, (3) enjoy the representation of a prominent commercial gallery, they would likely not consider the applicant to be “under-recognized” by the field. As a general rule, the HARPO Foundation prefers that their funding go toward providing opportunities and encouragement to artists who have yet to receive this level of support.

**Visual Artists (e.g., Painting, Illustration, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking). Creative writing, dance, theater, film, digital/new media, performance art, and site specific installation art fall outside the purview of the HARPO Foundation. However, a proposal with an interdisciplinary approach may be considered as long as it has a strong visual art component.
