The Grant Wood Art Colony of the University of Iowa announces the recipients of the 2020-21 Grant Wood Fellowship. Each year, three fellows are selected from an international search to become artists-in-residence and visiting assistant professors at the University of Iowa. Through a competitive process, the following talented artists were selected by their peers: Margarita Blush (Interdisciplinary Performance--Theatre), Johnathan Payne (Painting & Drawing), and Elena Smyrniotis (Printmaking).

During their year at the University of Iowa, the fellows will live at the Grant Wood Art Colony, each teach one course per semester, engage community members across the state, and make work. The Grant Wood Art Colony will host several lectures and an end-of-year exhibition.

More information about these and former Grant Wood Fellows can be found by clicking on Current and Past Fellows.
