The Sendak Fellowship was established in 2010 as a residency program for artists who tell stories with illustration. The fellowship offers the time for artists to explore their craft outside the limitations of everyday life and in the relative isolation of a rural setting.
This summer the fellowship is moving to Scotch Hill Farm, formerly owned by Mr. Sendak, in Cambridge, New York. Two fellows will be provided their own fully equipped cottage with kitchen and studio space and receive a fellow’s stipend.
This year’s Sendak Fellows are Nora Krug and Harry Bliss.
