Al Smith Fellowship and Emerging Artist Award: Al Smith Fellowship wards $7,500 to artists who have achieved a high level of excellence and creativity in their work. Emerging Artist Awards are $1,000 and given to artists who are beginning their creative careers and have demonstrated superior talent and potential in their artistic discipline.
