about

We Are Here

In 2011, the Eiteljorg rebranded the Fellowship with a new title for the program, the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship. Having established the program and type of art we were promoting, we determined it was time to let the term “fine art” go.

Understanding Connections

  I like to contextualize things and I like to respond to them. And, I find often that through the act of writing I will begin to dream and I will begin to understand connections I’d like to make.”
