City launches first arts-and-culture fellowship to pay emerging curators for exhibits at City Hall

The City’s Office of Arts + Culture is accepting applications for its new “Emerging Curators Fellowship” program, a funded opportunity for emerging curators to develop and present two exhibitions inside Sacramento City Hall.

The fellowship is a year-long program, and the selected fellow will produce and mount two exhibitions with the support of a curatorial mentor. Individuals or teams and collectives may apply. The fellow will receive a stipend and funding for both exhibitions.

“This program is intended to provide an opportunity to those interested in the visual arts curatorial field, but may not have easy access to funding, locations, or other resources,” said the City’s Arts Program Coordinator Susanna Tu.

The fellowship is open to curators in the Sacramento region (50-mile radius of the city) with limited experience, but strong interest in further exploring a curatorial practice. This includes, but is not limited to artists, art historians, arts organizers or administrators, community organizers and self-taught practitioners.

Find eligibility criteria and full guidelines on the City’s website. Applications must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. Sept. 5.
