The Kimmel Harding Nelson
Center for the Arts Residencies

Two Deadlines:
May 15, 2006--Session 1
September 1, 2006--Session 2

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts offers an average of thirty-eight juried residencies per year to writers, visual artists and composers. There are a number of transitional residencies reserved for recent masters degree program graduates. These candidates are reviewed as a separate peer group. Residencies are available for either two, four, six or eight weeks stays.

The Center, inspired by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in the historic district of the Missouri River town of Nebraska City. Essential amenities, such as a grocery store and pharmacy, are located within walking distance for residents without cars. The Center also has two bicycles for the use of the residents.

Each of the two apartments in the Center has a balcony and shares the use of three private landscaped courtyards. Residents are provided with a private bedroom and private bath in an apartment which is shared with one other person. Writers studios are located in the apartments. Visual artists studios are in a separate building behind the Center. We encourage composers to bring their own electronic keyboard. The Center is equipped with high-speed internet access. Each resident receives a $100 per week stipend.

Deadlines for each session are:
May 15, 2006 for Session 1: August 7, 2006 to December 15, 2006
September 1, 2006 for Session 2: January 1, 2007 to June 15, 2007
