Call for emerging artists of all media from MN or NYC for place-based Lanesboro residency program


Mon, Aug 22nd, 2016
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro Arts invites emerging artists in all media from Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City to apply for the Lanesboro Residency Program, generously supported by the Jerome Foundation. Applications are due September 1, 2016 (online submission deadline) for residencies scheduled in 2017.

The Lanesboro Residency Program provides an opportunity for emerging artists to create new work and explore new ideas while utilizing an entire rural community and its myriad of assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation. Through 2-week and 4-week residencies, the program offers artists lodging, studio space, project/community facilitation, a weekly stipend of $1,000, 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 is seeking emerging artists interested in place-based work, or work that is inspired by and made for the community of Lanesboro. We are seeking artists whose work is inherently innovative and visionary, has a track record of success and shows significant potential for growth, is informed by place and community, centers on public engagement and is accessible to people with diverse backgrounds. Particularly, work should activate communities either in their creation, post-production, and ideally, both.

Lanesboro Arts is a non-profit, multidisciplinary arts organization working to weave the arts into the social and municipal fabric of Lanesboro, Minn. LA works closely with local government and cross-sector partners to activate the people and places of Lanesboro, making Lanesboro a national model for revitalizing and sustaining a small town. The community has been recognized by ArtPlace America, Americans for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 2014 Lanesboro Arts was a recipient of a Bush Prize for Community Innovation.

The residency program was created in order to align with and amplify the Lanesboro Arts’ vision for rural communities to embrace artists as economic drivers, culture bearers, community builders, and problem solvers. Lanesboro Arts supports two to four residencies each year. The program has benefited 43 artists since its inception in 2001, ranging in media from painting, music, sculpture, dance, photography, video, theatre, and fiber arts.
