Pittsburgh Artist Fellowships at The MacDowell Colony

Artists from Greater Pittsburgh are encouraged to apply for Fall 2012 residencies at The MacDowell Colony. Two artists accepted from the region will receive Heinz Endowments Fellowships, which underwrite all costs of MacDowell residencies for up to two months. The application deadline is April 15 for residencies occurring between October 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013.

At MacDowell, artists receive unlimited use of a private studio building, three meals a day, living accommodations, and opportunities for inspiring exchanges in a multidisciplinary community of fellow artists from around the world. Artists of all disciplines and career stages are encouraged to apply. The Fellowships are open to artists who reside in Pittsburgh or the surrounding 10-county area (Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington, and Westmoreland).

Interested artists should apply using MacDowell’s standard application at\apply. Only those artists accepted for residency will be considered for the fellowships.

Based in Peterborough, NH, The MacDowell Colony welcomes more than 250 architects, composers, filmmakers, interdisciplinary artists, theatre artists, visual artists, and writers each year. Many of the artists MacDowell has served—including Aaron Copland, Michael Chabon, Toi Derricotte, Glenn Ligon, and Wendy Wasserstein—came to the Colony when they were still emerging in their fields. The Heinz Endowments is a Pittsburgh-based foundation with the mission to help southwestern Pennsylvania thrive as a whole community—economically, ecologically, educationally, and culturally—while advancing the state of knowledge and practice across many areas of society
