Latinx Artist Fellowship
The Latinx Artist Fellowship awards a multigenerational cohort of 15 Latinx visual artists $50,000 each, for an initial commitment of five years.
This award is the first significant prize of its kind and celebrates the plurality and diversity of Latinx artists and aesthetics.
Our country’s Latinx artists—creatives of Latin American or Caribbean descent who live and work in the US—have made significant and vital contributions to American culture. Yet these artists have lacked visibility and received little of the philanthropic or institutional support necessary to secure their place in the story of American art.
Designed to address this systemic and longstanding lack of support, and now in its third year, NYFA administers the Latinx Artist Fellowship in collaboration with the US Latinx Art Forum, with support from the Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation.
