This fellowship is designed to help bridge the gap between the ways objects are studied by conservators and the ways they are approached by academics in the human sciences.

The participating institutions are The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The American Museum of Natural History, Anthropology Division, and The Museum of Modern Art.

The fellowship, based in the APS Museum, will provide hands-on experience in curatorial work and the opportunity to pursue an independent research project. As the public face of the APS, the museum researches and interprets the APS’s extensive collections for the regional, national, and international visitors who converge on Philadelphia’s historic district. Twenty percent of the Fellow’s time will be reserved for his or her own independent research, ideally using resources at the APS or kindred regional institutions.
Caltech and The Huntington have established a collaborative interdisciplinary research program, formally titled “Materialities, Texts and Images." Its aim is to investigate the historical relations between the material world and different forms of cultural representation; and to examine the strategies by which knowledge and taste have been and are constituted. There is a focus on the dynamics between material and other (ideational, calculative, inductive) forms of instantiation.
This unique residency offers creative collaboration in a dynamic environment. It brings together Smithsonian scholars and distinguished visual artists from a variety of disciplines throughout the United States and abroad to explore cross-disciplinary connections.

SARF fellowships support research and do not require recipients to create or exhibit artwork.
One David and Julie Tobey Fellowship, for three months, is available each academic year to support research on drawings, prints, and illustrated manuscripts from the Italian Renaissance.

Projects must also represent the role that these works may have played in the creative process, the history of taste and collecting, or questions of connoisseurship.
