“COLA Fellows are the type of unique civic entrepreneurs that we need in this city,” said DCA General Manager Danielle Brazell. “DCA is proud to honor these creative visionaries and nurture their symbiotic relationships with LA and other artists and the city’s history and identity as an international art capital.”
“COLA Fellows represent the spectrum of LA’s exemplary mid-career artists,” said DCA Grants Administration Division Director Joe Smoke.
“The COLA grants allow these accomplished, influential, and not yet ultra-famous artists to create new work that the City of Los Angeles will premiere for the general public in one or more group presentations accompanied by a promotional catalog and informative artist talks.”
