Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellowship

Established in 1986, the Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellowship promotes the exhibition of contemporary art at the Saint Louis Art Museum, as well as the teaching of contemporary art principles in the Sam Fox School. The fellowship centers around two core components: teaching in the College of Art and producing work for a solo exhibition for the museum’s Currents series.

Applications for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 Freund Fellowships are open through January 31, 2024.
