In honor of the late painter, Mona’s family has created a two-week visual arts fellowship at Mineral School (2 hours from Seattle, near Mt. Rainier) open to an artist who self-identifies as LGBTQ and lives in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington) or the provinces of western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon). This fellowship funds a two-week residency any month and transit from Seattle, Portland, or points between. Depending on the medium and artist preference, they can work in the studio room where they sleep, spread out in the gym, or improvise outdoors.
