Fellowship eligibility is limited to emerging visual artists living in the five boroughs of New York City. The Queens Museum defines an emerging artist as one who is at the dawn of their public career. The eligible artist has completed his or her studies, but has not had solo exhibitions at established commercial galleries or institutions or received major grants. The category also includes artists who are well beyond their studies, and may have participated in group exhibitions but have not received extensive press or market recognition. These artists may have exhibited their work in other countries on a limited basis, but have not had major exhibition opportunities in the US or in New York in particular.
A three-member jury will review applications and make final selections. The jury will consist of Queens Museum Director of Exhibitions and two other arts professionals, one of whom will be based outside of New York City.
