Eliza Moore Fellowship for Artistic Excellence 2021

In 2021 the Oak Spring Garden Foundation will award our annual Eliza Moore Fellowship for Artistic Excellence to one outstanding, early-career artist who is developing, new works that address plants, gardens, or landscapes in the broad sense.  This is our most prestigious artist award and is open to visual artists, literary artists, dancers, and musicians. The award includes a $10,000 individual grant and requires a two-to-four-week stay at Oak Spring. This fellowship will be granted to an exceptional artist who shows remarkable promise to contribute to a deeper understanding of the natural world, and humankind’s place in it.

The individual selected for this award will be asked to spend 2 - 4 weeks at Oak Spring where they will be able to meet with staff, explore our 700-acre landscape and our efforts in sustainable land management, and visit our rare book library that holds over 19,000 objects, including many examples of botanical art.  The Fellow will have ample time and space to work independently on their own projects during their stay. The only requirement during their time at Oak Spring will be to give one 45-minute presentation with time for questions, to Oak Spring staff and any other fellows or residents who might be on site.
