This post begins a new series on the Academy's blog about the unique opportunity offered through the Postgraduate Fellowship at the New York Academy of Art.
Each year, the Academy selects three outstanding graduating students to serve as postgraduate fellows. During their fellowship year, these artists are able to take advantage of studio accommodations at the Academy, exhibition offerings, tutorial support and opportunities for teaching assistantships. At the beginning of the school year following their appointment (September), the Academy holds an exhibition dedicated to the work the fellows have done during their residency.
Fellows often find this opportunity instrumental in the definition of their artistic voices. The 2010-2011 Fellows John O'Reilly, Maya Brodsky and Austin Park will be exploring this exciting time in their careers with a series of brief Q & A posts over their residency. Follow the fellows on this blog and see their progress!
