NAC SELECTS FY18 ARTIST FELLOWSHIP RECIPIENTS
NAC has selected seven Nevada artists to receive FY18 Artist Fellowship funding and one Nevada artist to receive Fellowship Project grant. During public meetings held in June at Truckee Meadows Community College, panelists reviewed 47 applications submitted by artists working in visual arts and 6 applications working in literary and performing arts. After much discussion, the panels developed a list of recommendations, which the NAC Board considered and approved at its Board Meeting on June 28, 2017.
Four Artist Fellowships of $5,000 each were awarded in visual arts. Three Fellowship honorable mention awards of $500 were awarded as well. One artist will receive the FY17 Fellowship Project grant of $7,000. Congratulations to:
