The Cultural Council created the Artist Innovation Fellowship Program for artists across all disciplines in order to honor and support the creative individuals who form the core of Palm Beach County’s cultural sector.

The Artist Innovation Fellowship is unique among professional development opportunities as it focuses on personal creative growth and the belief that an entire community will benefit through investments in creative individuals. The program is designed to address the pursuit of innovation in either existing avenues of creative expression or through the pursuit of new ideas and projects without the constraints of budgets or specific project outcomes. 

Through a generous grant from the Leonard and Norma Klorfine Foundation, the Council awarded five $7,500 Artist Innovation Fellowships in 2020. Fellowship funds could be used for supplies, research, instruction, apprenticeships, travel, or other experiences to help the recipient explore and expand their creative process. The artists awarded the fellowships are:

  Anthony Burks Sr., visual artist (West Palm Beach)

  Isabel Gouveia, visual artist (Lake Worth Beach)

  Amy Gross, visual artist (Delray Beach)

  Joshua Lubben, musician (West Palm Beach)

  Donna Murray, choreographer/dancer (Jupiter)

Join the Cultural Council on June 19th as they showcase new work and live performances from the 2020 Artist Innovation Fellows. During this special opening celebration, the five inaugural Artist Innovation Fellows will showcase new work made possible by the program. The event will also feature performances Joshua Lubben and Donna Murray.
