Next Generation Program
The Coconut Grove Arts Festival’s Emerging Artists Program is a robust mentoring program designed to help create the Next Generation of Art Show Artists. Our goal is to give this next generation of Artists the foundation they need to begin their art show careers after completing the second year.
This will be a two-year program.
The first year is Education and Internship
- Participate in free workshops including financial planning, portfolio reviews, art show booth displays, and pricing work.
- Intern during the festival. This is to learn the business firsthand. The intern will help with all artists’ aspects of the festival and spend time with professional mentors.
In the second year, this next generation of artists will have the opportunity to show their work:
Highlights of this year include:
- Tent in our Emerging Artist section
- Personal financial planning
- Personal application consultation.
- Resides in Miami-Dade County.
- If the emerging artist is not a local resident, they must be willing to travel to Miami and provide their own housing during the festival.
- Is truly a novice and has never participated in an art show.
- If you meet these criteria and want to apply, please email FestivalArtist@cgaf.com for further instructions.
