Lanesboro Artist Residency Program – Call For Artists

Lanesboro Artist Residency Program – Call For Artists

Lanesboro Arts announces a call for artists for the Lanesboro Artist Residency Program, offering two or four week residencies to emerging artists. Participants explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 31 Jul 2019

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program, located in Lanesboro, MN (pop. 754), is supported by the Jerome Foundation and aims to provide an immersive, meaningful experience for emerging artists from Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City. The program provides an entire rural community and its myriad assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation. Staff work with each resident to create a fully-customized residency experience.

Lanesboro Arts’ goal is to be flexible and accommodating to artists, allowing them access to local resources needed for conceptualizing and realizing their place-based work. Lanesboro Arts recognizes place-based work as work that is specifically inspired by and designed for the place in which the work takes place. It can be a new project or an interpretation of the artist’s current work tailored to engage the community of Lanesboro. The residency program was designed to align with and amplify Lanesboro Arts’ vision for communities, especially rural communities. The program embraces artists as economic drivers, culture bearers, community builders, and problem solvers.

Lanesboro Arts strives to provide artists with a dynamic and compelling array of community assets. They seek out projects where the activation of the people and places of Lanesboro are at the core of the artistic process.

Lanesboro Artist Residency Program Artist Benefits

Artists are paid $1,000/week. They are provided studio and lodging space. Lanesboro Arts does not cover material or transportation costs. These expenses should be factored into the $1,000/week stipend. Artist groups are eligible to apply, but the weekly stipend is the same and must be split among the collective. Artists must be legal residents of Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City and have been residents for at least one year prior to the submission of an application.

Community Resources And Assets Available To Residents

  • St. Mane Theatre, a 126-seat Art Deco theater located in the heart of downtown
  • Poetry Parking Lot, a large municipal parking lot with haiku hung throughout the space
  • Gateway Park, a public green space adjacent to the Root River and connected to downtown via a 1893 walking bridge
  • Historic downtown storefronts, alleyways, building walls, and open spaces
  • Local farms, farmers, and farmer’s markets
  • The Root River State Bike Trail
  • Community partnerships with local businesses, the Lanesboro Park Board, the Lanesboro Museum, residents, schools, libraries, and community organizations

Lanesboro Artist Residency Program participants do not need to secure community partners or stakeholders when submitting their application. That said, research done beforehand about the Lanesboro community and surrounding area can strengthen a project proposal. The role of Lanesboro Arts staff for selected artist residents is that of translator and facilitator. The staff works with artists to make the needed connections. They help secure the required resources in order to make selected residency program projects a success.

The use of all community resources and assets are subject to approval from property owners and the Lanesboro City Council. Resources will be facilitated with each artist by Lanesboro Arts staff. Lanesboro Arts has a positive, collaborative relationship with these entities. They will work with each resident to find the best venue for all parties.

About Lanesboro Arts

Through a diverse spectrum of community arts programming, Lanesboro Arts supports artists, revitalizes public spaces, and builds a sense of community and civic pride among the 754 people who call Lanesboro home. Programming includes free youth education classes, fine arts galleries, internship programs, performance art, opportunities to participate in public art, and placemaking activities.

For nearly 40 years, Lanesboro Arts has built strong cross-sector partnerships. They creatively approach community challenges, most recently with the ongoing realization of the Lanesboro Arts Campus vision. This community-wide initiative aims to integrate the arts into the social and municipal fabric of the city. They do so by placing art in accessible public spaces, identifying and eliminating participation barriers, and building a community identity in which all citizens value the arts. The process of the Lanesboro Arts Campus empowers artists, audiences, and community members to positively contribute to the social, civic, and economic vibrancy of Lanesboro.

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Momentum 2019. Though a photograph is a snapshot in time, the world around us is in constant motion.  This call is about how you capture the idea of motion/momentum in a single frame, photographs that send clearly a message to the viewer that the subject or the camera/lens is moving. Is the position of the subject the indication, a wave arched to crash, or a ballerina in mid air? Is it the subject or background blurred as a speeding train you have panned with background buildings a blur? This call is not about still life, landscape, or posed portrait images.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 17 Mar 2019

Examples for Momentum 2019 are everywhere including the silky vision of water over a waterfall taken at a slow shutter speed, water droplets frozen in time, trees bent in blowing wind, ripples of a boat’s wake, and fireworks. Sports, transportation, and animals each afford a huge number of possibilities and, of course, there are endless ways camera and zoom action can draw the viewers eye. This is an online gallery exhibition only.

Momentum 2019 Artist Benefits

The total prizes for Momentum 2019 is $4000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 15 juror’s selections, and 25 honorable mentions.  Each of the winners have an opportunity to exhibit in a New York City gallery, the Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen.

East Village NYC Mural – Call For Artists

East Village NYC Mural – Call For Artists

El Sol Brillante, a community garden on 12th Street between Avenues A and B in New York’s East Village, is seeking artists to create a mural along the back wall of the garden.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 1 Jul 2018

When the garden was first incorporated, a trompe l’oeil mural along the back wall depicted lines of crops extending back into the vanishing point. For years, that mural was the symbol of the garden until subsequent construction resulted in its partial demolition. The new mural should capture the spirit of the original: the infinitely renewing power and energy of nature extending outward from the garden.

A committee of garden members will meet to determine which proposals mesh best with the garden’s values and aesthetic. They will forward those proposals for consideration to the membership of the garden which will vote to determine the final project at a garden meeting.

The garden has received a grant providing for a $250 commission for the artist plus all needed supplies. An additional commission may be available. Include a proposed commission in the proposal.

About El Sol Brillante Jr Community Garden

The garden is a center of community life on 12th street, providing a haven from the hustle city life. It is a place where numerous plants flourish. The garden is a center of artistic activity, from music and dance performances to the Garden of Earthly Delights wrought iron fence created by Julie Dermansky in 1994.
