CCF Welcomes its 2022 Cohort of Visual Artist Fellows

November 14, 2022

A cornerstone of strength for community foundations is their ability to identify and support the most pressing needs of the community they serve. One such priority in Los Angeles is the arts due to its unique ability to highlight the diverse make up of its neighborhoods, while at the same time tying a community together. CCF highlighted its work with the arts, when the Fellowship for Visual Artists welcomed its newest cohort of fellows at a reception held at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes on September 13. The 2022 FVA fellows are: April Banks (Discipline: Interdisciplinary-Mixed Media), Nao Bustamante (Discipline: Interdisciplinary-Mixed Media), Enrique Castrejon (Discipline: Installation), Patty Chang (Discipline: Interdisciplinary-Mixed Media), June Edmonds (Discipline: Painting), Reanne Estrada (Discipline: Interdisciplinary-Mixed Media), Asher Hartman (Discipline: Installation and Experimental Film and Video), Iris Yirei Hu (Discipline: Installation), Phung Huynh (Discipline: Painting), Young Joon Kwak (Discipline: Interdisciplinary-Mixed Media), Sandra Low (Discipline: Painting), and Suné Woods (Discipline: Experimental Film and Video).

Recognized as one of the most prestigious arts fellowships in the region, visual artists are chosen by a panel of art professionals based on artistic merit and commitment to Los Angeles County. This year CCF received over 500 applications and were able to offer this fellowship to a diverse pool of 12 visual artists. As an FVA Fellow, artists receive:

  • $40,000 one-year unrestricted grant;
  • Participate in a collaborative artists’ retreat;
  • Have an opportunity to develop business skills to achieve financial independence; and
  • Membership to a community of prestigious artists in the region.

The CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists was launched in 1988 through a gift from the J. Paul Getty Trust to create a Fund for visual artists to recognize the outstanding talent of Los Angeles-based visual artists and arts organizations. Over the last 34 years, the Foundation has supported more than $6 million in unrestricted funds to more than 300 artists.

This effort has also been supported through the continued generosity of the J. Paul Getty Trust Fund for the Visual Arts and sustaining contributions from the following: Brody Arts Fund, T.M. and R.W. Brown Fund, Jennie Strong Memorial Fund, Joan Palevsky Endowment for the Future of Los Angeles, Rose Anne Rice Charitable Fund and other CCF funds.

The CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists is one of many fantastic programs organized at the Foundation to serve the Los Angeles community. For more information about our programs, please contact Erin Limlingan at or 213-452-6285.
