The Artist Fellowship Program was created in 1989 to encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence by providing financial support to outstanding artists. Fellowship grants go to contemporary artists living in Nevada in the literary, performing, and visual arts (including media arts), and may be awarded at any stage of the artists’ career development. Beginning in FY19, this grant also includes Folk & Traditional Arts Fellowship defined by cultural connections such as a common ethnic heritage, language, religion, occupation, or geographic area. By recognizing and rewarding artistic accomplishment, the program promotes public awareness and appreciation of the role of the artist in our society.
