St. Paul, MN – The Jerome Foundation has announced the 2023 grant recipients in the third round of the Jerome Hill Artist Fellowships program. 54 total fellowships will be awarded to early-career artists based in Minnesota and New York City: eight each in the fields of dance; film, video and digital production; literature; music; theater, performance and spoken word; and visual arts, and three in each of the newly added fields of technology-centered arts and combined artistic fields.

These two-year awards will provide support to fellows to create new work, advance their artistic goals, and promote professional development. President Ben Cameron said in a statement, “The Jerome Hill Artist Fellowships program, now in its third iteration, has become a signature program for the Foundation. Its unique combination of supporting the creation of new work, artistic development, and professional development through individually tailored multi-year grants offers artists important support in ways that are flexible, significant, and responsive.”

Fellows will also be given the opportunity to receive one-on-one coaching and peer gathering opportunities through the MAP Fund’s Scaffolding for Practicing Artists (SPA) program, designed to help artists individually and collectively consider, invent, and co-devise solutions tailored to their specific practice and aesthetic ambitions.
