Apply to the #InTheCity Visual Arts Fellowship!

The first of its kind at Harvard, #InTheCity Visual Arts Fellowship will select St. Louis-based fellows tasked with capturing different parts of the city in response to the question “What is St. Louis to you?” and pair them with student ambassadors responsible for contextualizing their work. As an on-campus ambassador for the fellowship, you will curate an exhibition on Harvard’s campus and help structure the fellowship’s program over the course of an academic year.


The #InTheCity Visual Arts Fellowship is a collaboration between: Tef Poe, artist, activist and former Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History Fellow; De Nichols, 2019-2020 Loeb Fellow at the Graduate School of Design and Principal in Design & Social Practice for Civic Creatives; Dr. Walter Johnson, Winthrop Professor of History and African and African American Studies and Director of the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, Dr. Flavia Pérea, Director of the Mindich Program in Engaged Scholarship and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences’ Inequality in America Initiative. It is housed under the Commonwealth Project at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History.
