The Oak Spring Garden Foundation calls application for Eliza Moore Fellowship for Artistic Excellence 2021. In 2021 the Oak Spring Garden Foundation will award our annual Eliza Moore Fellowship for Artistic Excellence to one outstanding, early-career artist who is developing, new works that address plants, gardens, or landscapes in the broad sense. In addition to that, this is the most prestigious artist award and is open to visual artists, literary artists, dancers, and musicians.

Funding and Benefits 

Moreover, the award includes a $10,000 individual grant and requires a two-to-four-week stay at Oak Spring. This fellowship will be granted to an exceptional artist who shows remarkable promise to contribute to a deeper understanding of the natural world, and humankind’s place in it.

The Fellow will reside in a nicely appointed, self-catering accommodation during their time at Oak Spring.  The fellow will have a private bedroom and bathroom and share a living room and kitchen.


The individual selected for this award will be asked to spend 2 – 4 weeks at Oak Spring where they will be able to meet with staff, explore Oak Spring Garden Foundation 700-acre landscape and our efforts in sustainable land management and visit the rare book library that holds over 19,000 objects, including many examples of botanical art. The Fellow will have ample time and space to work independently on their own projects during their stay. The only requirement during their time at Oak Spring will be to give one 45-minute presentation with time for questions, to Oak Spring staff and any other fellows or residents who might be on site.
