Four Orange County Artists Win California Arts Council Fellowships
Hannah Eko, Nancy Nguyen, Alicia Rojas and Keya Vance have been selected to receive 2021 California Arts Council Artist Fellowshps. Anne Bown-Crawford, California Arts Council’s executive director, said the agency “is eager to celebrate, along with our fellows, this much anticipated return to directly supporting our state’s artists.”
This quartet isn’t just being saluted for artistic talent; each is slated to receive a cash grant meant to encourage them in and reward them for their endeavors. The CAC is awarding a total of $2.185 million to 182 recipients, all of whom applied for a 2021 Individual Artist Fellowship, a new program that’s in some ways a reboot of the council’s past practice of providing grants to individual California artists.
