Artist Lecture: Bryce McCloud, 2018-19 CECA Tennessee Artist Fellow
Free, First come, first seated
The Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts (CECA) recently announced that Bryce McCloud, of Nashville, is the 2018-19 recipient of the Tennessee Artist Fellowship.
McCloud is a studio/public artist and founder of Isle of Printing, a letterpress and fabrication shop located in Nashville. According to the selection committee, members “were highly impressed with Bryce’s commitment to community-engaged work. His philosophy of making art accessible, engaging and supportive of local community is paramount in his public project Our Town, as well as his Nashville-based business, Isle of Printing. His Our Town project has been in fruition for several years now, and it continues to be an example of what is possible when combining art with public engagement.”
The CECA Tennessee Artist Fellowship was created to celebrate contemporary art and to support the continued creative work of exceptional Tennessee artists. Unlike other fellowships, nominations and applications from artists are not solicited. A committee of APSU faculty compiles a list of outstanding artists from across the state and selects the fellowship recipient.
This event is co-sponsored by CECA and the Frist Art Museum.
