Leslie Barlow ’16, MFA, has been named one of four recipients of the 2019–2020 20/20 Springboard Artists Fellowship. 

20/20 Artist Fellowships are unrestricted $15,000 cash awards accompanied by $5,000 professional development stipends to allow BIPOC and Native artists from any discipline or career stage the agency to decide how to use the funding in support of themselves, their businesses, communities, and independent creative practices. The felolowships do not require recipients to create projects or exhibit artwork.

With the funds, Barlow plans on continuing to grow her emerging artist project, Studio 400. This expansion will support and sustain the practices of even more BIPOC artists.
