Posted in Arts & Culture

Lanesboro Arts Center in Lanesboro, Minnesota, announces a Call for Artists for the Lanesboro Residency Program. Applications are due annually on June 30 (postmark deadline) for residencies scheduled October-April.

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 two-week and four-week residencies, the program offers artists live/work space, project 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.

The Lanesboro Residency Program has benefited 26 artists since its inception in 2001, ranging in media from painting, iron sculpture, ceramic tile sculpture, literary arts, photography, music, video, and fiber arts. New this year is a large studio space above the St. Mane Theatre in historic downtown Lanesboro.

To apply, interested artists will submit a completed application form, resume, residency project proposal including community outreach aspect, work samples, and a letter of recommendation. Applications will be 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; 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 can be downloaded from the Lanesboro Arts Center website, www.lanesboroarts.org (choose 'Art & Artists' on the drop-down menu, then click on Residencies to read about the program and to access a pdf application form). Contact Lanesboro Arts Center for more information or to receive an application form in the mail: 507-467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org.

The Lanesboro Residency Program has been funded by Lanesboro Arts Center members and by generous support from the Jerome Foundation of St. Paul, Minn. Located in Lanesboro, Minn., Lanesboro Arts Center is a professional, not-for-profit organization that serves as a catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages.
