Guggenheim fellowship

DEFINITION

Intended as 'mid-career' recognitions, these awards are given to persons judged to have shown exceptional ability in the arts and/or scholarship. About 220 fellowships are given each year for a time period between six and 12 months. The average dollar amount of each one is $43,000, enough to insure a block of time free of preoccupation with making money. There is no stipulation as to how the award period is spent. The program began in 1925 with the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. There are two separate competitions, Canada or the United States and Latin America or the Caribbean. Artist recipients include Robert Colescott, Emil Bisttram, Karel Appel, Peter Blume, Giorgio Cavallon and Walter De Maria. Sources: http://www.gf.org/about-the-foundation; AskART database
