Artist in Residence Opportunity

North Dakota Museum of Art McCanna House

 

North Dakota Museum of Modern Art Artist in ResidencyIn 2010, Margery McCanna left her 1920 French country style home to the North Dakota Museum of Art as an artist-in-residence house. This beautiful home sits on 10 acres of land 25 miles west of Grand Forks.

North Dakota Museum of Art Residency HouseIn 2014, a major storm went through (and wood peckers had their way with the cedar siding) damaging the property and taking out trees. Unfortunately, some of the trees hit portions of the house.

 

North Dakota Museum of Art Artist Residency HouseNorth Dakota Museum of Art has been working to repair the house and yard since then. Finally, the house is back in order. As they did not know when projects would be finalized, they did not fill the 2016 artist-in-residence schedule. There are openings in July and August.

The North Dakota Museum of Art is accepting residencies in writing, visual arts, and music. Due to the short notice NDMoA has waived the application fee.

McCanna House Artist Residency Application

About McCanna House:

North Dakota Museum of Art presents a unique opportunity with the McCanna House Artist-in-Residence Program. This retreat consists of a 1920’s farmhouse and large outlying steel building in the midst of the thriving farmland of the Red River Valley of Eastern North Dakota. While the residency affords no dedicated media specific facilities at this time, the open mutable space of the house, barn and grounds affords opportunity for the creation of work in many scales. The powerfully vast physical space of the Great Plains allows the imagination to run wild, with the close proximity to large scale agriculture drawing one into the cycles of growth and harvest. Out of this open horizon emerges a peace and presence of mind uniquely conducive to creativity and artistic shift.

About the Artist Residency Program:

The residency consists of 3-5 week blocks of time layered throughout the operating year. Winter dictates that the house is only open from June 1st to the end of September. At this time in the evolution of the program, there will only be 1 to 3 individuals on the property at a time.  While there are no expectations for the artist to complete finished work during the residency, a pair of presentations will let the local and museum communities know what the artist is working on/through/with…. Artists are asked only to use their time wisely, and be aware of the transformative potential of time spent there.
