Deadline for the 2024 HMS Visiting Artist is September 1, 2023.

The HMS Visiting Artist Fellowship is a new initiative at Palm Beach State College made possible by a generous grant from the Helen M. Salzberg family. The fellowship aims to provide support for contemporary visual artists in Palm Beach County and works collaboratively with the Studio Art Program at Palm Beach State College.

The HMS Visiting Artist Fellowship provides an endowment of $6,000 to one selected artist per year and facilitate exhibition and mentoring opportunities for this Visiting Artist. Selected artists will be responsible for fulfilling the following obligations:

  • Selected artists agree to donate one work or a limited-edition original print to the HMS Fine Arts Study Art Collection.
  • Selected artists must make a lecture presentation for a student group and/or a community engagement workshop on or off campus. Additional funds of $1,000 per event for the facilitation of either a lecture presentation and/or community engagement workshop will be provided.
  • Selected artists are expected to make themselves available for mentorship opportunities on or off campus with the Koo Family Art Collaborative Mentorship recipients totaling 50 hours.
  • Selected artists must write a year-end fellowship summary of their activities for presentation to the HMS Visiting Artist Fellowship Committee.
  • Selected artists agree to participate in a Biennale at the HMS Fine Arts Gallery.

Any living artist legally residing in Florida is eligible to submit an application. Artists in any media or level of professional accomplishment should apply, but most importantly the artist should be able to complete the required duties of the fellowship as listed above. Emphasis will be placed on their ability to provide mentorship opportunities for Palm Beach State College students. The selection committee is looking to provide students with direct, on-site professional experience and engagement and applicants with active studio and professional practices are preferred. Additionally, ability to facilitate a workshop or lecture for on campus student engagement will be similarly considered as a high priority.

Deadline for the 2024 HMS Visiting Artist is September 1, 2023.
