Johnson’s Vermont Studio Center is getting a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts through Creative Inclusion Fellowships.

The money will support the creative process of art-making by offering artist residencies to visual artists with demonstrable financial need.

“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support this project from Vermont Studio Center,” said Arts Endowment Acting Chairman Ann Eilers. “Vermont Studio Center is among the arts organizations across the country that have demonstrated creativity, excellence, and resilience during this very challenging year.”

“VSC’s project provides talented artists with time and space to focus on their work at the Vermont Studio Center,” said executive director Elyzabeth Holford.

Vermont Studio Center is an international artist residency hosting visual artists and writers worldwide. The fellowship award includes a stipend to assist with costs associated with attending a residency, such as childcare, travel and lost wages.
