Abstract

Loeb Fellows are accomplished practitioners, influential in shaping the built and natural environment, whose work is advancing positive social outcomes in the US and around the world. In the middle of promising careers they step away from their hectic professional lives for one academic year. Fellows audit classes at the GSD and throughout the vast network of Harvard and MIT. They engage with faculty and students, participate in Fellowship events, and collaborate with their peers. They become part of a powerful growing network of colleagues passionately committed to revitalizing communities.

Eligibility

The program is for people in mid-career, with a minimum of 5-10 years of experience in the field. The Fellowship is for practitioners. It is not an academic sabbatical program or an artist residency; there are many other programs for those purposes.

We have a broad definition of who is working to improve the built and natural environment and whose work has a broad social impact. We have had a theater director, public artists, journalists, a documentary filmmaker, as well as architects, landscape architects and urban planners. If you are unsure about your eligibility, feel free to contact the program.

Abstract

Creative Capital is fiercely committed to groundbreaking ideas that challenge what art can be. As countless visionary projects selected for the Creative Capital Awards have demonstrated, socially impactful ideas are embedded in the work of forward-thinking artists in a myriad of forms, often with the goal of imagining new forms of living. Social engagement can take shape across disciplines, therefore, we have expanded opportunities for artists to propose socially engaged, multidisciplinary projects in every category instead of isolating socially engaged art as a unique formal category.

Artists are invited to propose innovative new projects for the Creative Capital Awards in the following areas (projects will be evaluated by external reviewers with expertise in the qualifying fields). We invite artists to submit their proposals based on which area experts are most suited and qualified to review the project proposal, with the understanding that radical art is often by nature interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, or antidisciplinary. By choosing to apply within a certain disciplinary category, we are asking you to choose how you want to frame the discussion around your work and to indicate which experts are most qualified to evaluate your project proposal.

Eligibility

Artist Eligibility

  • US citizen, permanent legal resident, or O-1 visa holder
  • At least 25 years old
  • Working artist(s) with at least 5 years of professional artistic practice
  • Applicant may not be a full-time student
  • May not apply to the Warhol Foundation Arts Writers grant program in the same year
  • May not have previously received a Creative Capital Award
  • May not be an applicant or collaborator on more than one proposed project per year

Abstract

The Society of Architectural Historians’ prestigious H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will be offered for 2022 and will allow recent graduate(s) or emerging scholar(s) to study by travel for a period of three, six or twelve months. In response to the uncertainty of travel and to broaden the accessibility to applicants who may not be able to take a full-year of travel, for whatever reason, the Society is amending the proposal requirements for the 2022 awards to include partial-year itineraries.

The fellowship is not for the purpose of doing research for an advanced academic degree or publication. Instead, Professor Brooks intended the recipient to study by travel and contemplation while observing, reading, writing, photographing, or sketching.

The goal of the fellowship is to provide an opportunity for a recent graduate with an advanced degree or an emerging scholar to:

  • see and experience architecture and landscapes firsthand
  • think about their profession deeply
  • acquire knowledge useful for the recipient’s future work, contribution to their profession, and contribution to society

Eligibility

  • Active membership in SAH.
  • PhD or an advanced terminal degree in a field related to the built environment. Eligible degree dates are between January 1, 2016, and June 30, 2021.
    • A terminal degree is the highest degree awarded in a given field.

Abstract

Princeton Arts Fellowships, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley Society of Fellows in the Arts, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1-July 1) at Princeton University and formal teaching is expected. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree.

Eligibility

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists–this list is not meant to be exhaustive–who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.

One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a lifetime.

Abstract

Forward-thinking. Experimental. Bold. Progressive. Innovative. Once recognized for these defining characteristics, significant modern structures around the world often fall victim to material deterioration, perceived obsolescence, and public apathy. These threats repeatedly result in inappropriate alterations or demolition. As many of these modern buildings are too young to qualify for landmark designation and protection, the need for preservation and increased public awareness of these unique resources is urgent.

WMF launched the biennial World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize with founding sponsor Knoll in 2008 to recognize the individuals and organizations that preserve our modern built heritage through pioneering architectural and design solutions. The prize honors contemporary architects and preservationists whose work ensures sustainable futures for at-risk modern heritage.

The prize is part of WMF’s broader programming that addresses these challenges facing modern sites through advocacy, education, and conservation, including the World Monuments Watch. The prize stemmed from WMF’s Modernism at Risk initiative, created in 2006 in response to the increasing threats to buildings representative of the modern movement.

The World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize recognizes outstanding physical interventions to preserve modern heritage. Projects that enhance a site’s architectural, economic, and environmental sustainability while engaging and benefiting local stakeholders are encouraged.

Abstract

The mission of the Roman J. Witt Residency Program is to support the production of new work at the University of Michigan. The program awards one residency per academic year for a visiting artist/designer to create work in collaboration with students and faculty.

The residency is expected to culminate in the realization of the proposed work, as well as its presentation. The cumulative exhibition will open in early April 2021 and will occupy the IH gallery - with possibilities for additional programming to extend beyond the gallery space. Plans should show consistency conceptually regarding the inherent overall structure of the project, have a strong visual impact and potential for engagement. This, along with the proposed work, will strongly determine selection of the artist/designer.

It is expected that a significant portion of time during the residency will be spent in direct interaction with students. Ideas for student interactions include but are not limited to: allowing students to work with the artist/designer; be in dialogue with the artist/designer; provide critiques on student work; engage in student-led interviews; or allowing for student observation of artist/designer's process. Creative methods of engagement to animate the gallery space as a focal point of campus activity are highly encouraged.

The 2020-2021 resident will conduct planning sessions remotely during the fall 2020 academic semester; they will be on-site in Ann Arbor during the winter 2021 academic semester, with student participation unfolding January 6-April 20, 2021, with the exhibition opening in early April 2021. Curatorial and installation support will also be provided. De-installation is the responsibility of the artist/designer: the work created is the property of the artist.

Eligibility

The Witt Residency is open to both established and emerging artists/designers. The Witt residency provides students an alternative learning opportunity to engage with practicing artists/designers who can make use of resources across campus, therefore the ideal candidate must value collaboration, have good social and communication skills and be interested in generating creative partnerships across disciplines. It is the goal of the Witt Residency to foster an atmosphere of inventive creative activity that extends throughout the University community.
