2022/2023 Working Artist Project Call

The Working Artist Project (WAP) is a year long fellowship program facilitated by MOCA GA to champion established visual artists of merit who reside in the Atlanta metropolitan region. This year, guest curator Drew Sawyer, the Phillip Leonian and Edith Rosenbaum Leonian Curator of Photography at the Brooklyn Museum, will select three of our best and brightest to receive a solo exhibition, promotion, a studio apprentice (in support of emerging artists in the Atlanta Community), a full-color catalogue, and a $15,000 stipend to create work over the course of the year.
