Tulsa Artist Fellowship is no longer accepting applications for 2018.

The names of the 2018 Fellows will be announced mid-June, 2017.

Fellowship begins January 15, 2018.


The Tulsa Artist Fellowship will cultivate Tulsa’s art scene by both supporting local artists and attracting national artists.

The Tulsa Artist Fellowship provides an unrestricted stipend and work-space in Tulsa, Oklahoma to US Resident artists.  Given the unique cultural and historical landscape of Tulsa, some fellowship spots will be reserved for Alaska Native, Native American, and Native Hawaiian artists. The Fellows are expected to integrate into the local arts community such as studio and collection visits. These and other activities will introduce the artists to the many treasures at Gilcrease Museum, Philbrook Museum of Art and beyond. The artists will live and work in Tulsa’s Brady Arts District, participating in the local arts community.
Fellowships are merit-based, not project grants, with a one-year term  for Visual Artists and a two-year term for Writers.
The Tulsa Artist Fellowship provides an unrestricted awards of $20,000 for visual artists and writers in all stages of their career.  TAF will provide  work-space  and free housing to  non-Tulsa residents.
