AHL Foundation : The 1st AHL Foundation Artist Fellowship


AHL Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural Artist Fellowship.  Four selected winners will receive an award of $5000 each at the AHL Foundation’s Annual Award & Gala Ceremony. Selected winners will also have the opportunity to showcase their works at a group exhibition in NYC in Spring 2020.

AHL Foundation Artist Fellowship was possible to be established with a generous contribution of Dow Kim Family Foundation. The unrestricted Artist Fellowship will be awarded to exceptional but under-resourced Korean American artists to support their creative activities during key moments in the development of their careers in order to help propel their careers to the next level.
