John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship - $25,000
Application Deadline: July 10, 2014
John D. Mineck was a past President of The Society of Arts and Crafts Board of Trustees and a beloved member of Boston's cultural community. The John D. Mineck Foundation was created in 2007 to award charitable and educational gifts that reflected Mineck's interests and values. His skills as a fine furniture maker were a result of passion, dedication and the guidance of a well-known furniture artist. Without that guidance, Mineck would not have realized his capabilities.
In an effort to support the art that Mineck loved and the people who make it, the Foundation created a fellowship to encourage and support a "young in career" furniture artist with the financial assistance to help them succeed in their journey. The fellowship has been designed to help support a talented furniture artist who is: looking to transition to independence, make a significant transition in their career, fulfill an apprenticeship or further develop their skills.
