The Holter Museum of Art and Intrepid Credit Union have partnered to create a fellowship that accentuates the importance of working artists in our community and to deepen the dimension and quality artist involvement in activating community art.

Artists make substantial contributions to our community’s vibrancy by boosting creative problem-solving, pushing boundaries, provoking though, and animating our neighborhoods and cultural institutions. These fellowships invests in the careers of Montana artists and supports the cultural vitality of the region. Through this fellowship, one artist working in varied disciplines is chosen by the Review Panel of professionals and peers from the Holter Museum of Art each year. The Intrepid Artist Fellowship is designed to call attention to the depth and quality of the art being created in western Montana and to amplify the work of one outstanding western Montana artists in visual and media arts each year.
Support for individual artists has been a focus of the Intrepid Fellowship since its inception. Intrepid Artist Fellowships increase the exploratory opportunity, economic stability, and production capacity of artists by providing $20,000 in unrestricted support for visual artists.
One artist from western Montana will be awarded $20,000. Fifty percent of the award will be made at the beginning of the fellowship period. The remaining fifty percent will be made available after the fellowship mid-point, after completion of a mid-point report and check-in. Each artist will sign a contract agreement and are responsible for all taxes due. (Please note that all awards and grants to individual artists are taxable income.)

The Holter Museum of Art and First Security Bank understand the vital role working artists play in our community. They also recognize the economic struggles artists face in the pursuit of their craft. First Security Bank is the title sponsor of this program. This grant was created to help artists create new projects, purchase equipment that will help production of their work.
For that reason, the two organizations created the First Security Artist Grants program. This allows artists the opportunity to easily apply for grants. The First Security Grants are meant to increase the exploratory opportunity, economic stability, and production capacity of artists by providing grants up to $3,000 in unrestricted support of visual arts.
Support for individual artists has been a focus of the First Security Artist Grants program since its inception.
