The Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) is pleased to award the City of Los Angeles (COLA) Individual Artist Fellowships to fifteen artists. The City of Los Angeles is one of a handful of municipalities throughout the country that offers individual artists grants.  DCA’s commitment to supporting the local, creative economy, while selecting artists who have demonstrated extraordinary talent, is one of the many reasons why the COLA Fellowship is nationally praised.
Of the fifteen COLA 2007 Fellows, the ten visual/design artists are: Paul J. Botello, Aya Dorit Cypis, Caryl Davis, Andrew Freeman, Clement S. Hanami, Rubén Ortiz-Torres, Coleen Sterritt, Lincoln Tobier, Carrie Ungerman, and J. Michael Walker. The three performing artists are Hector Aristizábal, Phil Ranelin, and Heather Woodbury.  The two literary artists are Diane Lefer and Luis J. Rodriguez.
The COLA Individual Artist Fellowship Program awards each fellow with $10,000 to produce new work for a public group exhibition.  Fellows are selected based upon years of artistic excellence.  Peer panels include local art experts, educators, and community leaders who review more than 150 competitive applications each year.
Each year, DCA presents a selected review of the COLA  fellows’ premiere artworks.  The 2007 COLA visual arts exhibition will be held at the Municipal Art Gallery located in Barnsdall Park, and curated by Mark Steven Greenfield. The 2007 COLA Performances will be held in the Barnsdall Gallery Theater also located at Barnsdall Park.
