Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. - Artists are invited to apply for a residency with the Lanesboro Residency Program. Applications are due annually on June 30 (postmark and online submission deadline) for residencies scheduled November 1 – May 31.

The Lanesboro Residency Program provides an opportunity for emerging artists to create new work and explore new ideas while engaging with the community through their artwork. Through 2-week and 4-week residencies, the program offers artists lodging, studio space, project/community facilitation, a stipend of between $500-$2500, and the time and space to focus solely on their art. As a component of each residency, artists spend time providing opportunities for learning, dialog and enrichment within the community. Lanesboro Arts Center supports two to four Residencies each year.

The Lanesboro Residency Program has benefited 36 artists since its inception in 2001, ranging in media from painting, music, iron sculpture, ceramic tile sculpture, literary arts, photography, video, and fiber arts. To apply, artists will submit a completed applicant information page, resume, residency project proposal including community outreach aspect, work samples, and a letter of recommendation. Applications are reviewed by a panel of Lanesboro Arts Center staff, working artists and community representatives. Successful applications will address the following criteria: 1) Quality of the work samples submitted (made within the past 3 years), and pertinence to the proposed project. 2) Value of the proposed project to the artist’s career and to the community. 3) Creativity and innovation of integrating art into the community. 4) Ability to accomplish the project outlined in the time requested. Application forms and instructions can be downloaded from the Lanesboro Arts Center website, www.lanesboroarts.org/cac-artist-in-residence.php.
