CINTAS Foundation Fellows Collection at Miami Dade College

CINTAS Foundation Fellows Collection at Miami Dade College The CINTAS Fellows Collection, held by Miami Dade College as repository and caretaker at the Museum of Art and Design, is the largest gathering of Cuban exile art. It includes work by more than 200 artists, including sculptors, print-makers, photographers, filmmakers and painters. Several exhibitions of the fellows' work have been organized over the years, including A Poetic Reality: Magical Realism of the CINTAS Fellows Collection (2013), Impact and Legacy: 50 Years of the CINTAS Foundation (2014), and Implied Interaction: Selected Works from the CINTAS Foundation Fellows Collection (2016). CINTAS Fellowships acknowledge creative accomplishments and encourage excellence in architecture and design, creative writing, music composition and the visual arts. Eligibility is limited to artists of Cuban citizenship or direct descent (having a Cuban parent or grandparent). The annual competition opens in the spring of each year. Applications are reviewed by panels of qualified members from each artistic discipline. The Board of the CINTAS Foundation awards fellowships based on the recommendations of these panels. CINTAS Fellows are free to pursue their artistic activities as indicated in their application. Fellowships are not awarded more than twice to the same person. Second awards are granted only to candidates demonstrating outstanding artistic development. Fellowships of up to $20,000 are awarded annually. The CINTAS Fellowship Program is administered by the CINTAS Foundation Board and Miami Dade College's Museum of Art and Design.
