AACC Founders Fellowship
The Montclair Art Museum (MAM) and the African American Cultural Committee (AACC), founded in the 1980s with the mission to sustain and maintain the legacy of artists of the African Diaspora, have created the AACC Founders Fellowship in honor of the founding members of the AACC.
The 10-month Fellowship opportunity is designed to provide career and growth opportunities for recent African American graduates of master’s or doctoral programs in visual arts and/or art history with a graduation date after December 31, 2019. Candidates who anticipate graduating prior to June 30, 2023 may apply.
The Fellow will commit to the activities described below over the period from September to June of each year. The Fellowship is designed to offer an individual candidate in the beginning of their career in the visual arts the opportunity to expand their practice, learn about working broadly with a leading museum of American Art, engage with a museum’s audience and artist community, and support the work of the AACC in its role as a bridge between the Museum and the African American community and a supporter of emerging artists.
