Promising visual artists are invited to apply for the Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellowship. Presented by the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis and the Saint Louis Art Museum, emerging and mid-career artists working in any medium are eligible.
The Freund Teaching Fellowship has two components: teaching in the Sam Fox School’s College of Art and producing work for a solo exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum, as part of its long-standing Currents exhibition series. Applicants must have an MFA and be at least 5 years out of graduate school with exhibition experience. Prior teaching experience is appreciated, but not required. Applicants should have specific ideas about what they would like to teach, given the opportunity.
One fellowship will be awarded for fall 2022, followed by a solo exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum in fall 2023.
