Posted in Lanesboro 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), and residencies are 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 lodging, studio 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 34 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, artists will submit a completed application form, resume, residency project proposal which includes community outreach aspect, work samples, and a letter of recommendation. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of Lanesboro Arts Center staff, professional artists and community representatives.
