The Schuylkill Center--Artist in Residence

Deadline: ONGOING

The purpose of The Schuylkill Center's Artists-in-Residence Program is to enhance awareness and appreciation for the environment through art projects and activities that involve the three components of education, presentation, and production.

Artists are selected based on the quality of their work and proposal statement. Proposals should include a workshop or activity that involves community or school groups. The workshop should address a nature related theme or issues concerning the environment. The workshop component can be for both project driven and/or arts-based learning driven residencies. Project driven proposals should include description of the body of work or piece that the artist is interested in developing. The work can be for both exterior and interior locations. Outdoor installations are especially encouraged.

Arts-based learning proposals should indicate how your art project relates to environment and ecology academic subjects. Artists from all visual arts backgrounds working with nontoxic materials are eligible and include sculpture, painting, mixed media, works on paper, fiber, etc. Selected artists will receive an honorarium, studio space and a housing stipend. The level and amount of stipends are subject to availability of funding.
