This project was supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Eighteen artists in North Carolina were awarded the distinctive honor of being named the 2010-2011 North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship Awards. The awards were in the categories of choreography, craft, film and video and visual arts. In the spring of 2012, sixteen of these artists will be featured in the Turchin Center galleries with new work.

Panels comprised of artists and arts professionals with expertise in each discipline selected these recipients. Since the program's inception in 1980, more than 500 artists have received awards. "Fellowships provide financial support for artists during a crucial point in their careers," said Nancy Trovillion, acting director of the North Carolina Arts Council. "These grants give artists a chance to deepen their work and explore new ground." Each of the artists received a $10,000 fellowship.
