This Information Session will provide an overview of the 2024-25 Queens Museum-Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists and provide information about the eligibility requirements and the fellowship experience. We’ll discuss the details of the program, now in its sixth cycle and hear from the experiences of recent fellow Sydney Shen (2020-2021) who will be in attendance. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in a Q+A with QM staff for all fellowship, application, and experience questions. Staff will be available to answer some questions related to the World’s Fair in relation to this opportunity, but it will not be the focus of the Information Session.


Please note: Attending an information session is not mandatory, but attendance is encouraged for prospective applicants. An earlier information session held on July 20 at 6:00 – 7:30 pm EST will focus on the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. Learn more here.
