Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowship Program
The application period for the 2013 Fellowship cycle is now closed.
The Bradley Family Foundation administers the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists program. The program, funded by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund, has two components. The fellowship program provides unrestricted funds for Established and Emerging artists to create new work or complete work in progress. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Suitcase Export Fund for Visual Art was created to help artists with the cost of exhibiting their work outside the four-county area (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington). Both programs are open to practicing artists residing in the four-county area. Sixty-seven fellowships have been awarded since the program began in 2003.
Three workshops will be offered to help prospective applicants better understand the application process. Polly Morris, executive director of the Lynden Sculpture Garden, who administers the fellowship program, will be joined by current and past Nohl Fellows at these informal sessions. The workshops are free and open to the new applicants as well as those who have applied in the past.
