Today, we launch a four-month celebration marking the 25th anniversary of the Pew Fellowships in the Arts. A program of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, the Fellowships has invested annually in the Philadelphia region's most talented artists working in all disciplines, and provided direct support to 323 artists to-date.
To celebrate a quarter-century of steadfast belief in the value and impact of artists, we've created a lively website that provides a glimpse into the region's distinctive creative output, through new Pew Fellows interviews, an evolving Instagram exhibition of Fellow's work, a history of the program, and more. We invite you to join the celebration at the link below, and revisit the site for weekly updates.
In March, the Center will release a short film exploring the profound impact of the Fellowships on the creative lives of the region's artists. In the meantime, you can view video trailers on the anniversary page, and follow @PewCenterArts on Instagram so you don’t miss a moment of our anniversary celebration.
