The John Fluevog Shoes Emerging Artist* Grant is intended to help emerging artists develop their skills and increase the visibility of their artwork. The winner will receive $10,000 towards their artistic work, a pair of Fluevogs and a heap of recognition within the best community of shoe fans ever!
As makers of unique soles for unique souls since 1970, John Fluevog Shoes has long been a friend to artists of the gifted and aspiring variety. Constantly inspired by the individuals we are fortunate to call ‘Fluevogers’, both admiration and gratitude drive us to support the growth and development of such up-and-coming talent.
The Award is open to a variety of visual artistic media including but not limited to photography, textiles, painting, drawing, illustration, sculpture, mixed-media and others. Emerging artists who don’t have access to major funding are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must demonstrate a history with and an ongoing commitment to an original art practice. You will be required to submit a sample of your work.
Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
Artistic works created under this grant will be presented to the public.
Given the good-natured and often whimsical history of John Fluevog Shoes, submissions that are similarly positive, bold and original in spirit are preferred. The Fluevog Artist Grant will not support works that exploit an individual’s vulnerability.
The Fluevog Artist Grant submission deadline is January 14th, 2019 4:00pm (PST).
