The Louisiana Artist Fellowship Program is the Division of the Arts' highest award for creative achievement among individual artists. Ending in 2010, these awards recognized outstanding artists for their accomplishments and helped them produce new work by providing the time and resources to develop their ideas. Selected through a rigorous panel process, artist fellowships were awarded in dance, design arts, folklife, literature, media, music, theatre and visual arts and crafts. The recipients listed below present a body of work essential to Louisiana’s cultural heritage and creative vitality.
