Overview

The Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) and Oregon Humanities (OH) are instituting a significant new fellowship program for emerging to mid-career Oregon-based artists. Beginning in 2019, OCF and OH will work together to award four Fields Artist Fellows $100,000 each over a two-year period, along with robust convening and learning opportunities.

The hope is that this opportunity will enable Fields Artist Fellows to take their art to a higher level and pursue artistic work that responds in meaningful ways to the Opportunity Gap in Oregon.

Over this initial two-year term, Oregon Community Foundation and Oregon Humanities anticipate that the four Fields Artist Fellows will represent different regions of the state and advance their artistic practice while addressing the Opportunity Gap within these regions.
