Professional Artist Fellowship

The Professional Artist Fellowship

The Arts Council for Long Beach recognizes exemplary Long Beach artists for their recent work through the Professional Artist Fellowship awards.

Eligible artists must be active Long Beach artists who live, work or actively create in Long Beach and demonstrate an active exhibition and/or production record of at least three years. We welcome artists and performers of all genres to apply.

In addition to the Arts Council’s existing Professional Artist Fellowship Grant, the Long Beach Recovery Act also allocated additional funding for artist fellowships through the Creative Economy Grants Program. Applicants can apply for both through one application.

  • Artist Fellowships: Professional artists who live, work or actively create in Long Beach and demonstrate and active exhibition and/or production record will be eligible to apply for Artist Fellowships through ArtsLB’s existing Professional Artist Fellowship selection guidelines.

Grant applications open Monday, May 2, 2022. The deadline the 2022-2023 grant cycle is Thursday, July 7, 2022.
