NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowships in Digital/Electronic Arts
The NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship “made a difference in my life, my career, and my art practice.” – Justin Berry (Fellow in Digital & Electronic Arts ‘14)
NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowships are awarded to individual, originating artists living and working in the state of New York, in fifteen different disciplines over a three-year period. Disciplines change every year so if you work with Digital/Electronic Arts, this is your time to apply! Recipients will be awarded $7,000 to fund their vision or voice, regardless of the career stage of their artistic development. This is not a project grant.
Accepted work includes original 2D works created or displayed on computers or other electronic media; works based on 3D computer models; sculptural works; interactive installations including immersive virtual environments; internet projects; hypertext documents; and other image, text, audio or video works rooted in technology.
