ABOUT The Working Artist Project

The 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. A guest curator selects three visual artists to receive the Award. Representing our city’s best and brightest; these artists are supported with an exhibition, promotion, studio apprentice(s), 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.

ABOUT The Studio Apprenticeship

Each established artist selected for the WAP program mentors one or more emerging artists over the course of their fellowship year, creating partnerships in which both mentors and mentees can benefit from sharing knowledge, skills, ideas, experience, and the potential for creative collaboration.  Through the WAP program, the apprentices each gain paid working experience with the Fellows and an exhibit of their work at MOCA GA during a group exhibition at the end of the following year.
