Come back to this page on February 8, 2021 for the 2021 fellowship application!
The Philadelphia Fellowship for Black Artists is designed to fund, foster and elevate the important work of Black artists. Launched in June 2020 as a new annual initiative, the 2020 Fellowship offers twenty artists $1,000 each to support their craft.
These twenty artists are also given the opportunity to receive consultative sessions with experienced curators who can offer guidance on building powerful portfolios, marketing their work, and networking with fellow creatives from Philadelphia and beyond.
You can view a showcase of their work below. We encourage you to follow these artists’ social media accounts, visit their websites, and purchase their work as possible.
Mural Arts is committed to offering iterations of this Fellowship on an annual basis, and look forward to opening applications again in Spring 2021. Stay tuned!
