Dear Civitellians, Friends, 

With great pleasure, the Board of Directors and Staff of Civitella Ranieri Foundation announce our 2019 and 2020 Fellows in the Visual Arts. These newly named Fellows include citizens of six nations never before represented at Civitella (Uzbekistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Tanzania, Mauritus, and Guyana). Of the 32 awardees, fourteen are from the United States and over 60% are female.

The awardees were chosen from a highly competitive pool of close to 200 nominations. The Foundation offers these individuals unfettered time to concentrate on their own projects and studio practice. The Fellowship covers airfare, room and board for a six week residency at the Civitella Ranieri 15th century castle in Umbria, Italy. 

We all look forward to welcoming these new Fellows to Civitella!
