The Explorers Club is proud to announce a new round of its “Artist-in-Exploration” program – generously underwritten by Rolex Watch USA – and is now accepting applications from members and non-members alike.

This program is a rare opportunity to receive funding for art created while working in the field. Submitted proposals are limited to artwork that falls within the traditional definition of Fine Art, which includes painting, sculpture, architecture, music, poetry, and photography. Film and video will not be considered in this program at this time.

A $25,000 award will be given to one artist or proposal, as selected by the Artist-in-Exploration Review Committee. Applications must be completed in full as per instructions on the application form and received by Oct. 15, 2015 5:00 pm EDT
