The Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency (JTHAR) announce a call for artists for the group artist residency period of seven weeks, April 27 – June 15, 2021. Artists unable to attend this group residency program may apply for a 6 week individual stay at JTHAR. Artists selected for this program are at all stages of their careers and work in all media, including drawing, painting, photography, film, video, new media, installation, fiction and non fiction writing, interdisciplinary, social practice, and architecture.
Deadline: 10 Jan 2021
JTHAR supports the CDC, state and local guidelines for limiting exposure to COVID-19 and is committed keeping a small, rural community safe. Each artist can work in uninterrupted solitude as living quarters and studios are private and resident schedules will not overlap. Participating artists practice social distancing, wear face masks, and diligently use hand sanitizers and disinfectants during their stay.
“It’s impossible to describe my time at JTHAR without words that sound hyperbolic, but they’re all true. Beyond unprecedented access to a natural landscape like none other, the Joshua Tree Highlands Artists Residency brought me into a community of artists and neighbors who will never cease to inspire me. When I told a friend about my work in the desert, she gave me this advice: “be the most wild version of yourself.” In an environment at once challenging, wondrous, and limitlessly supportive, JTHAR was the gift to chase the wildest, most fulfilled version of myself and of my art.” – Rae del Bianco
“JTHAR provided me with time and space to not only explore my own artistic practice but learn about an entirely new ecosystem and engage with a rich artistic community. The unique landscape of Joshua Tree is deeply inspirational. During breaks between working on large studio pieces, I would go outside and just paint what I found around me. These observational studies kept my painting muscles strong and ended up influencing larger works. This balance of having the studio, the landscape, and the community at my fingertips made the experience.” – Benn Hambuger
About Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency
Founded in 2007, JTHAR is a nonprofit artist residency that fosters creativity through opportunities for exploring, experimenting, quiet reflection, engagement, and cross-cultural exchange with the vibrant local artist community. The program establishes spaces where inspiration happens on a daily basis.

Each year, 4-6 artists from around the world create work amidst the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, a spectacular and unique setting.

The City of Penticton, BC, Canada announces a call for artists for their Public Sculpture Exhibition. Created in 2016, Penticton’s Public Sculpture Exhibition (PPSE) is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculptures. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the City of Penticton. The city is looking for up to six (6) sculptures to be located along the Okanagan Lake waterfront or downtown and one (1) larger feature sculpture for the Front Street roundabout.
Deadline: 6 Dec 2020
The Penticton Sculpture Walk Exhibition is committed to serving the public by providing access to various mediums of public sculpture. It is well noted that public art slows down the pedestrian traffic, providing a positive impact on the enjoyment and mood of the general public, that influences how people see and connect within their communities, and provides an opportunity for dialogue between friends and strangers alike. Through an annual revolving collection of sculptures, the City of Pentiction hopes to provide a freshness to public art that engages, connects, and provides its community with a sense of image and identity, as well as including Artists as contributors to this cultural fabric.
The exhibition is open to professional sculptors of all backgrounds. Previously completed sculpture photos, or proposed designs can be submitted. For proposed designs, detailed drawings of the proposed sculpture and photo examples of previous work must be included.
Lakefront/downtown sculptures are required to remain on site for the duration of one year (May 2021 -April 2022). The roundabout sculpture may be negotiated into a two year term (May 2021- April 2023).
Artists will be responsible for transportation of their sculpture to and from site. Pedestals/ pads will be provided by the PPSE.
Artists will retain the ownership of their sculpture and be responsible for carrying comprehensive insurance to cover it in the event of theft or vandalism and public liability or will sign an indemnification in favour of the City of Penticton for any liability claims against the City as a result of the existence or location of the sculpture within the City during the exhibition. The risk of loss or damage to the sculpture will always be borne by the artist, and the artist will be responsible to repair and or replace all or part of the sculpture in the event of loss or damage thereto during the exhibition.
The City will enter into a lease agreement with the artist for the duration of the exhibition. The artist is responsible to uphold all terms and conditions of the agreement as set out by the City.
City staff and/or City contractors will perform the installation to ensure that the work is done in accordance with City standards, and to optimize the viewing of the sculpture. Sculptures will be placed in predetermined locations at the discretion of the PPSE committee and City. Artists are encouraged to be present for the installation of their sculpture(s) in May, 2021, and removal in April, 2022. In the event the artist cannot be present, they are required to provide in writing a representative to be present on their behalf.
At the end of the lease any sales/leases of sculptures will be conducted solely by the artist or their agent and will not involve the City. The City will be responsible for media relations and publicity for the sculpture exhibition. The artist will retain copyright for their sculpture and grant the City a license to take and distribute images of the sculptures. Any other likeness or models of the sculpture will not be created without the explicit permission of the artist.
Public Sculpture Exhibition Artist Benefits
Artists will be paid a set lease price of $2,000 for the waterfront/downtown sculptures and $4,000 for the roundabout sculpture. In addition to the lease amounts, prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ($500, $300, and $200 respectively) will be awarded.
With Penticton being a year-round tourist destination in British Columbia’s heart of the Okanagan, chosen artists will benefit by receiving access to the general public for a period of one full year for the waterfront or downtown sites, and a possible two year period for the Front Street roundabout site. Throughout the lease period, artists also gain access to further leasing or sales opportunities that may conclude at the end of the lease period. These further opportunities will be conducted solely by the artist and outside of the involvement of the City.

About CICA Museum
Started from the sculptor Czong Ho Kim’s studio in 1994, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) became a unique cultural space founded and cultivated by artists. Czong Ho Kim has designed and built the art complex with a distinctive style, consisting of five buildings in Gimpo, Korea. In the 1990s, Gimpo used to be a rural area famous for rice farming, which has now transformed into a satellite city of Seoul with a fast-growing population. Meanwhile, the area around CICA Museum has developed into an industrial complex.
While the city drastically transformed, Kim dedicated over 25 years of his life cultivating this art complex. Kim has considered living space as an extension of his art practice; therefore, many details from his architecture, including interweaving angles of windows, roofs, walls, and a restrained yet functional style of stair railings and facades, were designed and finished by him. Kim designed the CICA Garden, where you will find several on-site sculptures blended into the space. Unlike many modern architecture designed and built in a short period of time, this unique art complex bears 25 years of consistent endeavors of an individual artist and his team.
CICA Museum Exhibitions and Publications
Since 2014, CICA Museum has networked with over 4,000 international artists while organizing experimental publications and international exhibitions including the CICA international exhibition and publication on New Media Art, Art Yellow Book, and Artist Statement. To overcome uniform dissemination of contemporary art from the “center of art,” CICA aims to introduce local artists and cultures from different regions to global audiences and connect them with each other.
In 2017, CICA Museum formed the CICA New Media Art Conference (CICA NMAC) which has become an annual conference. For CICA NMAC, CICA Museum collaborated with Gimpo City in 2017, Anyang City Cultural and Art Foundation in 2018, and Seoul National University in 2019. CICA Museum organized “Art Teleported,” the Art Show and Conference for Nomad Artists, held in New York in 2019 and 2020. Through exhibitions, publications, conferences, and diverse experimental platforms, CICA hopes to create a global network among local artists, designers, audiences, and communities so that they can make, appreciate, and live in art in their regions and cultures.
