BROOKLYN, NEW YORK—A Blade of Grass, the Brooklyn-based nonprofit that strives to provide resources to creatives who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change, has established two new fellowships that will support art projects in Los Angeles and New York–based, emerging artists of color.

The fellowships will be offered in 2020 as part of A Blade of Grass’s annual Fellowships for Socially Engaged Art program, which awards eight artists or collectives $20,000 each. The deadline to submit applications for the 2020 fellowship cycle is October 16. More information about the opportunities can be found on A Blade of Grass’s website.

This year’s socially engaged art fellows were Kevin Bott, Ras Cutlass, Daresha Kyi, Shaun Leonardo, Tara Rynders, Monica Sheets, and the collectives House/Full of Blackwomen and John Malpede, Henriëtte Brouwers, and Rosten Woo.
