Always an exciting time of the year for me when the Kresge Artist Fellows are announced and I can look to see if a friend of mine has won. It is equally enjoyable for me to meet new Fellows and hear more about their art.
Eighteen fellows were selected that are from both literary and visual arts. Each artist will receive $25,000 that they will be allowed to freely utilize to grow their art or whatever their hearts desire.
Congratulations to all of the winners and welcome to the family! I have said it before and will repeat – this will be a game changer for you. Utilize and embrace all of it — especially the professional practice work offered by Creative Many Michigan.
