This two-year fellowship offers an artist in the field of artist books, publication arts and/or printmaking the opportunity to work at Black Rock Press and participate in all aspects of the activities of the press, both its academic curriculum and its publishing and outreach practices. Fellows receive part-time work and the facilities to continue their artistic pursuits while gaining experience in the field of publication and building a community. Culminating the two-year fellowship, the fellow will participate in the Black Rock Press Parley Project.
The Parley Project is a biennial interdisciplinary book art project that fosters research and conversation across the University of Nevada, Reno campus and involves Black Rock Press students, staff and faculty in its production. Working in collaboration with another person or entity on the campus, the fellow designs a project based on this outreach.
