Mass Cultural Council Artist Fellowships Changes

The Massachusetts Cultural Council announced a change in the application dates for the 2010 Artist Fellowships. Instead of a December deadline, as in the past, the dates are much earlier.

"The online application for the Drawing, Painting and Traditional Arts categories will be available September 1. Applications for these categories will be accepted from September 1 through October 12, 2009." Read more.

In an email, the MCC said "This new schedule will mean a faster turnaround time between application and award announcements, while preserving the program's focus on a fair and anonymously judged review. As always, the program aims to foster the creation of new work by Massachusetts artists, the individuals at the center of our state's vibrant creative life."

I'm looking forward to September 1st, when more information will be available.
