New Partnership Between Pew Fellowships and Artist Residencies

The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage is pleased to announce that a group of recent Pew Fellows will take sojourns outside of the Philadelphia area next year for residencies that will push their artistic practice and expand their horizons. These Fellows will soon find themselves in new surroundings—creative communities that nurture artistic expression and exploration, located in California, Alberta, and under the big sky of Wyoming—thanks to a new residency partnership between Pew Fellowships in the Arts (PFA), the Alliance of Artists Communities , and four North American artist residency programs: 18th Street Arts Center (Santa Monica, CA), The Banff Centre (Banff, Alberta), Headlands Center for the Arts (Sausalito, CA), and Ucross Foundation (Ucross, WY).

An additional partnership with the MacDowell Colony will also give one Pew Fellow each year the opportunity to spend time as The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage Fellow in residence at one of the oldest and most prestigious residency programs in the country.

According to 2011 Pew Fellow Matthew Suib, a visual artist heading to the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada, "I'm excited about being 2,500 miles away from anyone who might ask me to do anything other than make art.”

Visit the Center newsroom to read more about these upcoming artist residencies and learn how PFA's new partnerships fit into the program's overall vision for working closely with Pew Fellows.
