Calling all artists, composers and writers for a chance to win a 2011 CINTAS Fellowship Award!
Fellowship applicants must submit applications and examples of their work by August 29, 2011.
Miami Dade College (MDC), the new home of the CINTAS Fellows Collection, and the CINTAS Foundation are seeking artists, composers and creative writers to compete for a chance to win 10,000 USD and a 2011 CINTAS Fellowship Award in Visual Arts, Music Composition and Creative Writing.
There will be an exhibition at MDC's National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower in October highlighting the work of the CINTAS finalists in the three disciplines: music, visual arts and creative writing. Hortensia E. Sampedro, president of the CINTAS Foundation, will announce the winner of each fellowship who will be awarded 10,000 USD and the opportunity to pursue a project outlined in their applications.
The only one of its kind in the nation, the CINTAS Fellowship Program has honored more than 300 artists since it was established in 1963. Past grant recipients include composers Orlando García and Tania León; architect Andrés Martín Duany, writers Oscar Hijuelos, María Irene Fornes and Reinaldo Arenas; and visual artists Agustín Fernández, Félix González-Torres, Guillermo Calzadilla, Quisqueya Henríquez, Lydia Rubio, Gean Moreno, Glexis Novoa, Luís Gispert, María Martínez-Cañas, Carlos Alfonzo and Andrés Serrano.
The CINTAS Foundation awards fellowships annually to creative artists of Cuban lineage who reside outside of Cuba. The Foundation was established with funds from the estate of Oscar B. Cintas (1887–1957), former Cuban ambassador to the United States, a prominent industrialist and patron of the arts.
Competition details and all program requirements and application forms are posted on the CINTAS Foundation website at www.cintasfoundation.org.
