Community Arts Fellowship Program

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center (www.jmkac.org) in Sheboygan, Wisconsin announces its Community Arts Fellowship program. In its inaugural year, the Community Arts Fellowship is designed to experiment with and define new ways of hands-on collaboration within an arts organization between artists and a broad community. Working in The ARTery space—a hands-on, drop-in, collaborative art-making gallery—the Fellow will have the opportunity to develop interactive projects specific to his/her area of interest that reach out to new communities, provide more in-depth engagement into the exhibitions in the galleries, and provide an accessible entry point to the Arts Center for active participation by people of all skill levels and ages. The fellowship is intended to offer an artist, teaching artist, or artist-administrator (graduate-level candidate or an exceptional undergraduate candidate) professional experience in a nationally acclaimed arts environment. The fellowship start date is August 1, 2008, and the deadline for applications is May 15, 2008. Please see their website for more information.

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is a nationally acclaimed visual and performing arts complex in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The Arts Center is devoted to innovative explorations in contemporary art, new models for community arts, unique educational partnering with an emphasis on early childhood education, presenting internationally acclaimed performing artists, as well as supporting practicing artists through a variety of residencies.
