2015 John D. Mineck Fellowship

May 16th, 2015

Ends on 6/15/2015

John D. Mineck Foundation

The foundation was created in 2007 to award charitable and educational gifts, which reflect John’s interests and values.  John’s skills as a fine furniture maker were a result of passion, dedication and the guidance of a well-known furniture artist.  Without that guidance, John would not have realized his capabilities.

In an effort to support the art that John loved and the people who make it, the Foundation has created a fellowship to encourage and support a young-in-career furniture artist with the financial assistance to help him/her succeed in his/her journey.  The fellowship has been designed to help support a talented furniture artist looking to fulfill an apprenticeship, develop his/her own skills, and/or make the transition to independence.

The John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship of $25,000 is awarded annually to one artist and is administered by The Society of Arts and Crafts (SAC).

State—award ceremonies, filmmaker symposia, the annual ScriptBiz Screenwriting Workshop, the new Documentary Film Forum, a walking tour of film locations in Providence, an expanded KidsEye Interational Film Festival with morning workshops and kid-friendly activities, networking events and much more.
