2023/2024 NAC Artist Fellowship Program is now accepting applications.

The National Arts Club (NAC), currently celebrating its 125th anniversary, is a non-profit organization with the mission to stimulate, foster, and promote public interest in the arts and to educate the American people in the fine arts. The Club is situated in Gramercy Park in New York City.

The NAC Artist Fellowship program, established in 2019, provides a select number of established professional artists (21 years of age or older) with 12 months of full membership to the historic club, with the goal of furthering their careers. The chosen Artist Fellows can be working in any one (or more) of the disciplines reflected in the NAC’s arts committees, adhering to the Club’s core values of championing all facets of the evolving American artistic landscape: Archeology, Architecture, Art and Technology, Culinary Arts, Dance, Decorative Arts, Fashion, Film, Fine Arts, Literature, Music, Photography, and Theater.

Artist Fellows will be provided with complimentary Club membership, providing access to the historic clubhouse, public programs and discounted private overnight rooms. The Artist Fellowship provides opportunities for the recipient to be featured in Club programming and presentations. Artist Fellows are selected by a rotating jury comprised of arts specialists, NAC Board members, and previous Artist Fellows. To be considered for a National Arts Club Artist Fellowship, applications must be received by September 1, 2023. NAC Fellowship recipients will be informed of their selection in mid- to late September, with the Fellowship starting in October, 2023. The application process is open to all artists. Applicants must be 21 years of age or older. Applicants of all backgrounds, including BIPOC artists are highly encouraged to apply. There is no residency with this fellowship. Applicants should reside within the NYC metro area to receive the maximum benefit from the fellowship.
