Phillip Tennant

Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

The Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship has given Phillip time away from an academic setting to reconnect his passion of designing and building furniture with his love for gardening and landscaping. His travels included many parks, gardens, and community centers. Phillip studied the designs of seating and outdoor furniture design and how they interact with the surrounding landscape. Following his fellowship, Phillip plans to share his fellowship research and experience with his students at Herron
