Cincinnati Offers Seven Fellowships of up to $6,000 Each

Starting June 26, 2012, the City has been accepting applications from individual artists who work professionally in art disciplines, including but not limited to dance, music, theatre & visual arts, poetry/fiction writing, interdisciplinary/performance art, and media arts.

The applicant must be a City of Cincinnati resident during the entire duration of the program, July 1, 2012 – May 31, 2013. The program is being administered through the Cincinnati Recreation Department. Mayor Mallory has appointed a new Cincinnati Arts Allocation Committee to select the winning local artists. The group has tweaked and streamlined the application and reporting process and will choose up to a dozen finalists to be interviewed in October, before final selection of the seven Art Fellowship recipients.

Councilmember Laure Quinlivan got Council support for $50,000 in funding for individual artist grants and came up with idea to have winning artists participate in two public presentation/performances at the end of the grant period, to showcase their artwork and explain their inspiration.
