Virginia Museum of Fine Arts lecture coming

Posted on in Latest News

VIRGINIA MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS VISUAL ARTS FELLOWSHIP LECTURE COMING TO SOUTH BOSTON.

Elizabeth Cruickshanks will present a one-session informational talk entitled “How to Apply for a VMFA Visual Arts Fellowship” on September 15 in South Boston.

Sponsored locally by The Prizery, the lecture will be at The Prizery at 7:00 p.m.

Cruickshanks will introduce attendees to VMFA’s Visual Arts Fellowship Program, providing a history of this wonderful resource for Virginia’s artists and art students and explaining how artists can apply for funding. The Fellowship program was the vision of the late John Lee Pratt of Fredericksburg, Virginia; offered through VMFA’s Art & Education Division, Fellowships are still largely funded by Pratt’s generous endowment, and supplemented by annual gifts from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation and the J. Warwick McClintic Jr. Scholarship Fund. Since its creation in 1940, the Fellowship program has awarded more than $4.4 million to over 1,100 Virginians. In this information session, which is open to the public, attendees will learn the ins and outs of the application process, how to ensure application materials are complete, and the history behind the program and some of the familiar names who have received awards in the past. The application deadline for the 2012-13 Visual Arts Fellowship is Thursday, November 10, 2011 – applications and eligibility criteria are currently online at www.VMFA.museum/fellowships.

Cruickshanks earned an MA in the History of Art & Architecture and a BA in Art History at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Va. She currently serves as Fellowship Program Coordinator at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
