Opportunity Description

U.S. Regional Deadline: April 24, 2020 – Queens Museum is pleased to announce its fourth QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists in New York City. Two visual artists will receive 20,000 USD each, professional development consultations, and close mentorship from QM staff members working toward an artist’s project. The fellowships will culminate in exhibitions at the Queens Museum in 2021. The duration of each fellowship is one year, and ends with the closing of the fellow’s exhibition.

The QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship is open to emerging visual artists living in the five boroughs of New York City. The Queens Museum defines an emerging artist as one who is at the dawn of their public career. The eligible artist has completed his or her studies, but has not had solo exhibitions at established commercial galleries or public institutions or received major grants. The category also includes artists who are well beyond their studies, and may have participated in group exhibitions but have not received extensive press or market recognition. These artists may have exhibited their work in other countries on a limited basis, but have not had major exhibition opportunities in the US or in New York in particular.


Queens Museum is dedicated to presenting the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the New York metropolitan area, and particularly for the uniquely international residents of Queens.
