Art Writing Workshop Announces 2017 Recipients

AICA-USA is pleased to announce the recipients and mentors for the 2017/2018 Art Writing Workshop, a partnership between AICA-USA and The Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program.The Art Writing Workshop gives practicing writers the opportunity to strengthen their work through one-on-one email and phone consultations with leading art critics. Every year, each of ten senior art critics makes a personal choice from the finalists among scores of applicants. Together, writer and mentor set goals, initiate an in-depth dialogue, and establish a practice through which to address such issues as prose style, organizational structure, and argument. The workshop’s goal is to aid writers who are intent on honing their skills and developing a compelling prose that can describe and question, render complex ideas clearly, and situate art works within their broader contexts.
