The Ralph T. Coe Foundation Fellowship will be awarded to an individual whose work promotes a holistic view of Native arts, working with both contemporary and historic art through an interdisciplinary methodology. Mr. Coe's own approach combined primary and secondary source research, a fierce appreciation and understanding of the art and its making, meanings and materials, and conversations with living descendants and other Native artists. The successful candidate will receive a stipend of $2000 per month for a period of two months, July 1 to August 31, 2013. The candidate is expected to be in residence in Santa Fe. No housing is available with this fellowship. The successful candidate will be required to present their findings at the end of their residence and curate and write an online exhibition from a selection of the Ted Coe Collection currently under the Foundation’s stewardship.
In addition, the successful candidate will be expected to pursue a second research project of his or her own choice. Please send no later than March 31 a writing sample no longer than 2500 words (including bibliography and footnotes), curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references. While in residence in Santa Fe the successful candidate will be considered a representative of the Foundation when attending events and will be expected to meet approximately three times with the Foundation Advisory Board prior to completion to discuss the project.
The application deadline is March 31, 2013. Please send your application via email to Fellowship@ralphtcoefoundation.org or mail to Attn. Fellowship, Ralph T. Coe Foundation for the Arts, Inc., P.O. Box 2325, Santa Fe, NM 87504.
