Several CalArtians were recently named 2012 recipients of The California Community Foundation (CCF) Fellowship for Visual Artists.

Among the 20 mid-career and emerging visual artists living and working in Los Angeles are the CalArts School of Art faculty member Shirley Tse and alumni Adam Overton (Music MFA 05), Heather Cassils (Art/Integrated Media MFA 02), Jody Zellen (Art MFA 89) and Olga Koumoundouros (Art MFA 01).

The fellowship is an investment in artists’ careers in order to help them build successful and sustainable careers in Los Angeles. Throughout the year, CCF fellows “engage with the public, effect change through their art and add to the culture and diversity of L.A.  County.”

Originated in 1988 through an initial grant by the J. Paul Getty Trust, CCF has awarded nearly $2.1 million in grants to 215 professional artists.

Fellowships awards, which are determined by panels of curators and artists, are $15,000 for emerging and $20,000 for mid-career artists.
