The MOCA GA Working Artist Project (WAP) is an awards program to support established visual artists of merit who reside in the metropolitan Atlanta area. This initiative provides an unparalleled level of support for individual artists, expands the Museum’s mission, and promotes Atlanta as a city where artists can live, work, and thrive. As with past years, a guest curator from a major national museum will select three visual artists to receive the Award. Representing our city’s best and brightest, these artists will be supported with an exhibition, promotion, a studio assistant, and a major stipend to create work over the course of the year. This program is supported in large by a grant from The Charles Loridans Foundation with additional funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

This year MOCA GA will provide the 2016/2017 WAP award recipients each with a stipend of $15,000; a $1,000 art supply credit from Binders Art Supply; a paid studio apprentice for up to 300 hours at $10 per hour; an opportunity to interface with collectors, artists, and the public through programming and studio visits; documentation of the artist and work via MOCA GA’s Oral History Project & Education/Research Center; Presentation of a solo exhibition at MOCA GA of new works created at during the WAP grant period; inclusion of one (1) new work from the solo exhibition in the MOCA GA permanent collection; and production of an accompanying full-color exhibition solo catalogue.

The Working Artist Project has supported 27 Fellows to date. Information from each artist can be found on the pages below.
