Lawrence Arts Center Project-based Residency


Project-based Residency
Lawrence Arts Center

Lawrence, KS

The Lawrence Arts Center is committed to supporting the work of the artists around us and to infusing energy into the cultural life of the region. We invite artists from around the world to work in our facility, share their expertise, to teach and interact with the community to create new work.

Project-based Residency

Goal: To help support, sustain, and foster growth in local arts and artists by providing material support for development of special projects, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary works, helping local artists to create works competitive on a national scale.

Info: The Lawrence Arts Center is a 40,000 square foot building housing three formal gallery spaces, the John Talleur print studio, the fully equipped and extensive Jane Kleinberg ceramics studio, a state of the art digital media lab, dance and performing arts studios, black box theater, metals and glass studio, a performing arts theater equipped with digital projectors and film screen and an arts-based preschool. These extraordinary resources can be made available to local artists for development of projects, installations or performances outside their normal studio practice. Individual artists or teams are encouraged to submit proposals for projects that show innovation and a desire to develop new work. Preference will be given to proposals that imagine the space in new ways and can benefit from the extensive studios and creative resources at The Lawrence Arts Center. Proposals will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Selected artists will receive a stipend of up to $300 per project, use of studio space at Arts Center established times, and up to 8 hours of private instruction in any studio space or medium. Housing will be provided, and the duration of the project based residency is 2 weeks – 4 months.

The Lawrence Arts Center is staffed with experts in each of our program fields, as well as arts professionals, and two annual artists-in-residence in the areas of printmaking and ceramics who can prove invaluable resources and energetic co-inhabitants for short-term residencies.
