GUIDELINES:
Kresge Arts in Detroit is providing significant financial support for eighteen (18) Kresge Artist Fellowships annually, each consisting of a $25,000 award and customized Professional Development opportunities for emerging and established Metropolitan Detroit artists in the Visual, Performing, and Literary Arts.

The Kresge Artist Fellowships recognize eighteen (18) artists whose commitment to innovation and artistic achievement are evident in the quality of their work. The Fellowships recognize creative vision and commitment to excellence within a wide range of artistic disciplines, including artists who have been classically and academically trained, self taught artists, and artists whose art forms have been passed down through cultural and traditional heritage. The Fellows are selected through an open, competitive, and blind process as judged by an independent Fellowship Panel.
