Join us as we celebrate the 2021 State Fellowship recipients and announce the Southern Prize winner and finalist. The Southern Prize and State Fellowships acknowledge and celebrate the highest quality artistic work being created in the American South. Each State Fellow receives an award of $5,000 and will be included in an exhibition opening this fall at the Bo Bartlett Center at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia and touring to additional locations in the region (dates/locations TBD) in 2022.
At this ceremony, two State Fellows will be named the Southern Prize recipients. One fellowship recipient will be named the Southern Prize winner receiving an additional $25,000 cash award, and another fellow will be named the Southern Prize Finalist receiving an additional $10,000; both Southern Prize recipients will also receive a two-week residency at the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences.
