Nohl Fellowship Anniversary Screenings

July 12, 2018 – September 13, 2018

As part of a celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fellowship program, the Charles Allis Art Museums offers a series of three screenings showcasing many of the filmmakers and media artists who have received the Nohl Fellowship since its inception in 2003. Each screening is organized by Ben Balcom, a 2015 Nohl Fellow. 

About the Fellowship

The Bradley Family Foundation administers the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists program. The program, funded by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund, has two components. The fellowship program provides unrestricted funds for Established and Emerging artists to create new work or complete work in progress. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Suitcase Export Fund for Visual Art was created to help artists with the cost of exhibiting their work outside the four-county area (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington). Both programs are open to practicing artists residing in the four-county area. Ninety-six fellowships have been awarded since the program began in 2003, and 285 individual artists and 15 artist collectives have received Suitcase Awards.

Over the past fifteen years, the Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists have helped to raise the bar for the local art community, providing monetary support to artists through a merit-based jury process, mounting an exhibition of the fellows' work, and producing an annual catalogue in conjunction with the exhibition. The fellowship fosters an ever-growing creative network that motivates artists to remain in the region to cultivate their creative practice in a supportive and flourishing atmosphere.
