Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Visual Arts Fellowship Recipients


The VMFA Visual Arts Fellowship Program was created in 1940 by the late John Lee Pratt of Fredericksburg, Virginia and has since awarded over $5 million to more than 1,250 Virginians. Offered annually through VMFA Statewide, VMFA Fellowships are largely funded by the Pratt endowment, supplemented annually by the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation and the J. Warwick McClintic Jr. Scholarship Fund.

Prior to 1989, Fellowship awards were made by a multi-person VMFA Fellowship Committee, who interviewed potential recipients in person; in 1989, this process was revised to the current anonymous method of jurors selecting recipients based solely on artistic merit. In this document the names of the jurors are listed from 1989 to the present, alongside their professional titles at that time.
From 1981-1987, the Virginia Commission for the Arts offered annual grants, administered through the VMFA Fellowship Program. Recipients of these grants are noted by the acronym ‘VCA.’
The following Visual Arts Fellowship Recipients lists are presented alphabetically by grant cycle, with their associated hometowns at the time of the awards, and the category and discipline in which the awards were given.
