CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Beginning October 30, 2014, Socrates Sculpture Park is accepting proposals for the 15th Annual Emerging Artist Fellowship (EAF), a residency program and exhibition that awards 15 artists the opportunity to produce and exhibit sculpture and installation in the park.
EAF15 recipients will receive a $5,000 production grant to support their project, and a five-month studio residency that includes 24/7 access to the resources and fabrication facilities of the park’s outdoor studio. The completed works will become part of an outdoor exhibition, opening in early October 2015. Administrative support for additional fundraising, securing in-kind contributions, and marketing will also be available. An electronic publication will accompany the exhibition and be made available online, for free; printed copies will be provided to EAF15 artists.
Residency: May 2015 – September 2015
Exhibition: October 2015 – March 2016
The EAF program is based on a competitive, open application process. Completed applications received by the deadline (January 12, 2015 at 11:59pm) will be reviewed by the Socrates exhibition department and two curatorial advisors consisting of Gary Carrion-Murayari, Curator, New Museum, and Nora Lawrence, Associate Curator, Storm King Art Center.
