Iowa-based artist Jim Shrosbree is one of 25 visual artists from the United States and Canada awarded a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship this April, for the Guggenheim Foundation’s 95th competition. This rigorous, highly competitive annual competition awards grant money to exceptional scholars, artists and writers. 168 recipients were selected from almost 3,000 applicants. Fellows are considered the crème de la crème of their field. Influenced by Catholicism and Eastern Indian philosophy, Shrosbree’s work has an elemental, mysterious quality.
