Emerging Artist Residency Fellowship

The Harpo Foundation’s Emerging Artist Residency Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute
(SFAI) was established in 2013 to provide an annual opportunity to an
emerging visual artist 25 years and older who needs time and space to
explore ideas and start new projects.  Artist Fellows will receive a
one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, which includes a
private room and bath, a private studio space, and a $500 travel
stipend. Founded in 1985, the Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) provides a
unique opportunity for emerging artists to pursue creative projects
without interruption. SFAI supports over 50 residents per year and
offers a cohesive, arts-focused environment that creates the ideal
working conditions for resident artists. Living and studio space is
located within a nearly 17,000 square foot complex designed by renowned
Mexican architect, Ricardo Legoretta. The unique SFAI environment allows
residents to be as interactive or private as they wish. There are no
requirements on the work produced during their time at SFAI.

One Fellowship is awarded annually to emerging artists who demonstrate:
  • Strong artistic ability and promise
  • An evolving practice this is at a pivotal moment in its development
