The Science Museum of Minnesota announces a call for artists for the Artist at Pine Needles Residency for Summer 2020, a program sponsored by the St. Croix Watershed Research Station. With the vision to enhance scientific understanding through art, the St. Croix Watershed Research Station invites artists-in-residence to interact with the scientific staff and local community to further explore the intersection between art and science. Since 2001, the Artist at Pine Needles Residency has welcomed over 50 artists and writers to the banks of the St. Croix River in Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota.
Deadline: 29 Feb 2020
In addition to accepting applications from established artists, the Pine Needles Residency includes an emerging artist category to encourage and support upcoming artists with this same calling. Emerging artists show some evidence of achievement. To date, they do not have a substantial record of accomplishment and are not yet recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, critics, and arts administrators. Emerging artists will be considered in a separate pool and must be 21 years of age or older.
About St. Croix Watershed Research Station
The St. Croix Watershed Research Station is the environmental research station of the Science Museum of Minnesota. It is a private, non-profit laboratory dedicated to better understanding humanity’s relationship with our most precious resource by studying how land use, climate change, atmospheric deposition, and other factors affect aquatic systems.
The setting for the Artist at Pine Needles Residency is the James Taylor Dunn Pine Needles Cabin, located just north of the village of Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota, on the bluffs of the St. Croix River. In 2019, the artists selected were: large-scale, 2D and 3D visual artist Katherine Steichen Rosing of Madison, WI; botanical printmaker Linda Snouffer of St. Paul, MN; installation artist and sculptor Peter Krsko of Wonewoc, WI; and emerging artist, lyrical essayist and poet Kate Lucas of Minneapolis, MN.
Applications for 2020 will be accepted from writers and artists who focus on environmental or natural history topics and strive to connect the complex world between art, nature, and the sciences. As part of the program, artists will be encouraged to design an outreach project to share their work with the local community.
Artist at Pine Needles Residency Artist Benefits
The 2020 Artist at Pine Needles Residency offers artists the unique opportunity to interact and learn from freshwater paleolimnological scientists who study how lakes and rivers are changing over time and what can be done to mitigate those changes brought on by land use practices and climate change. This interaction between artists and scientists fosters a deeper understanding of the connections between their artwork, the science currently being done to protect lakes and rivers, and how they interpret that art/science interplay to the public.
Pine Needles Artists get the sole use of a historic, 3-room cabin built before World War I. This rustic, comfortable cabin includes a full bath, bed/sitting room, and kitchen. A generous enclosed porch, overlooking the river, is suitable for writing, sketching, and reflection. It is located on a 20-acre site on the bluffs of the St. Croix River, a nationally designated Wild and Scenic River. The secluded site is heavily wooded, with spring-fed streams, native wildflowers, and local wildlife.
A short walk, bike ride, or drive will bring artists to the quaint village of Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota. A coffee shop, community-run library, family-owned restaurant, art gallery, gift shop, and seasonal ice cream shop provides entertainment and home-town feel to visiting artists.

Deadline: 31 Jul 2015
Art Shanty Project strives to create open artistic interactions between non-artists and artists. There are no application fees or restrictions to encourage creative people of all types to apply.
Art Shanty Projects does its best to support artists fiscally and logistically with as many resources as available. Project stipends for the 2016 On-Ice Program are intended to offset the costs for materials to build and move the structure as well as time to staff a shanty while the project is open to the public. The organization does not have additional travel stipends to offer out-of-state artists at this time.
The total stipend amount is grant dependent and will be disclosed prior to the submission deadline once all notifications of pending funds have been announced.
Art Shanty Projects is an artist driven temporary community exploring the ways in which the relatively unregulated public space of a frozen lake can be used as a new and challenging artistic environment to expand notions of what art can be.
For four weekends in February, a frozen lake in Minnesota is transformed into a village of ice fishing shanty-like structures designed and built by artists. Outdoor performances, games, and inventive cold-weather activities animate the shanties for thousands of visitors during the program period.
Art Shanty Projects’ 2016 On-Ice Program will take place on frozen White Bear Lake in White Bear, MN. The project is free and open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from February 6th-28th, 2016.
For 2016, Art Shanty Projects is offering: 20 artist team stipends (amount TBA), on-ice management, publicity, and shanty-building support.
