The Alice C Cole '42 Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding early-career painter or sculptor, providing a livable sum so as to support one year of unimpeded time and space to experiment, develop a body of work, and focus on future artistic goals. A solo exhibition at the Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College concludes the fellowship. Applications are accepted by nomination only.

Several UC San Diego Alumni including Jamilah Abdul-Sabur, Jesse Mockrin, Camilo Ontiveros, Brianna Rigg, Tim Schwartz, and Claire Zitzow were among the 50 nominees for the Alice C. Cole Fellowship. 

Alida Cervantes

Alida Cervantes is a Mexican artist who lives and works in the Tijuana and San Diego border region. Born in San Diego, CA, she was raised in Tijuana, Mexico, and grew up on both sides of the border. Her paintings, drawings, and performance work draw inspiration from class, race, and gender relations in colonial and present-day Mexico. Cervantes earned a BA from the University of California, San Diego (1995), then studied at Scuola di Arte Lorenzo di Medici in Florence, Italy, for two years. In 2013, she earned her MFA from the University of California, San Diego. Her work is part of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, and the Charles Saatchi, London collections.

Sophie Lee, Rebekah Goldberg, and Terry Powers were honored as finalists. Sophie Lee was chosen to be the 2014-2015 C. Cole Visiting Artist.
