Publication Program application

F&M Projects’ publication program is built upon the belief that an artist who makes impactful artwork should have that work investigated, communicated to the public, and properly archived for future researchers. Artists are chosen based on strength and quality of their work, clarity of intention, and professionalism.

The publication program is now accepting applications for the fall 2018 and spring 2019 releases. To apply, please e-mail the following information listed below to celeste@frenchandmichigan.org. Deadline is February 12, 2018.
