Episode 3: The Artist Next Door

Tuesday, July 11, 2017
Artists matter in North Carolina. As creators, interpreters and educators, they play an instrumental role in the vitality of our state. In 1980, the North Carolina Arts Council solidified the State's commitment to artists by creating the Artist Fellowship Program. Since then, the N.C. Arts Council has awarded over $5 million to hundreds of artists to support artist development and encourage new work. In this episode, Jeff Pettus, Senior Program Director for Artists & Organizations, who oversees the fellowship program, reflects on the mission of the program. Fellowship recipients David Joy, Shirlette Ammons and Daniel Wallace reflect on how receiving the fellowship shaped their careers.
