2023 Kresge Artist Fellowships Application Now Open

In 2023, Kresge Arts in Detroit will award 20 fellowships to metro Detroit artists working in Literary Arts and Visual Arts. Kresge Artist Fellowships are $25,000 no strings attached awards, plus professional development support and the creation of a short film highlighting the artist’s work.

Ten Gilda Awards, $5,000 prizes for emerging artists, named in honor of artist, CCS professor, and 2009 Kresge Artist Fellow Gilda Snowden (1954–2014), will also be awarded.

Fellowships and Gilda Awards will be divided between the two categories—Literary Arts and Visual Arts—based on the relative number of applications received in each category.

DEADLINE: JANUARY 19, 2023 BY 11:59 PM
