2013 Artists Fellowships
The Artist Fellowship Program was begun in 1985 to recognize donors to the Djerassi Program for their commitment to support the creation of new work by living artists. There are now three different categories of Fellowships: Endowed Fellowships are perpetually awarded each year through contributions made by generous donors to the Program’s permanent endowment fund. Annual Fellowships (including Artful Harvest Circle Fellowships) are created by individuals or institutions contributing $5,000 or more to support an artist’s residency during the season. Annual Honorary Fellowships have been awarded to other contributors whom the Program wishes to acknowledge for their generous support.
