Hey, Artists, the Kresge Fellowships Are Callin'!


Kresge's about to give some serious thanks ....

As we dance into and through the fourth quarter of 2010, we have much on our minds. Elections were today. We'll see how that pans out. The holidays loom on our calendars, as do the weather patterns that come with those dates. We ponder growing a year older and, hopefully, wiser, and maybe we reflect on what we've done or didn't do with the year. We measure ourselves.

But we're not the only ones judging our production and personal progress.

For artists in Detroit, this time of year also marks the opening of Kresge Arts in Detroit applications for the 2011 Fellowships, you know, the badass $25K award for being awesome at what you do and staying in the D.

For visual artists, the time is now. Don't sleep on this, guys.

Apply here.
