Chicago—Did you know Vermont Studio Center has a bunch of niche fellowships and one of them happens to be for you, a Chicago resident (or part of the SAIC alumni/faculty army). The Anderson/Frankel Fellowship exists!

There’s other fellowships throughout the year prior to the deadlines, focusing on everything from merit to medium, regionality, ethnicity or gender. I have friends that have come back from VSC and ranted for months and months of the facilities, friendliness and overall great experience. Apply, apply!

Deadline: June 15th, so hurry.

Also around the ‘Nets is word from Rhizome about the UK-based Lumen Prize Exhibition, a prize focusing on new digital art, which I am still very confused about.

Here we go…

“The Lumen Prize Exhibition is an international award that celebrates the very best fine art created digitally. Our goal is to focus the world’s attention on this exciting, emerging genre of fine art that can travel across borders effortlessly and be enjoyed in a wide range of venues – from galleries and museums in the world’s biggest cities to outdoor public spaces in both urban and rural environments.”

The deadline is July 31st and apparently you can enter as many times as you like, along with the $40 fee each time. w/e.


Happy holiday weekend!
