Nohl Jurors

Each year, the Nohl Fellows are selected by an independent panel of three recognized visual arts professionals working outside the four-county area. Jurors are chosen for their broad knowledge of contemporary art practices. Since its inception the Nohl Fellowship has intentionally taken into account race, ethnicity, gender, age, geographical location--as well as curatorial interests and the likelihood that the home institution would show a Milwaukee artist—when recruiting jurors.

On Thursday, November 7, 2019 there will be an informal reception welcoming this year’s jurors at the Haggerty Museum of Art on the Marquette campus (1234 W. Tory Hill St.). The reception begins at 6 pm, and the jurors will give a talk about their institutions and curatorial interests beginning at 6:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public.

The 2019 jurors will be announced in October.
