Call to Artists: Lanesboro Artist Residency program

Call for emerging artists of all media from MN or NYC for place-based Lanesboro Artist Residency Program 
July 31, 2019 application deadline for residencies scheduled in 2020

Lanesboro Arts invites emerging artists of any discipline living in Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City to apply to the place-based Lanesboro Artist Residency Program, generously supported by the Jerome Foundation. Applications are due at 12 p.m. (noon) CST on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 for residencies taking place in 2020.

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program provides an opportunity for emerging artists to create new work and explore new ideas while utilizing the dynamic and compelling assets of an entire rural community as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation. Through 2-week and 4-week residencies, the program offers emerging artists lodging, studio space, project & community facilitation, a weekly stipend of $1,000, and the time and space to focus solely on their community-engaged artistic practice.  

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program is a place-based program for emerging artists where art and the artistic process instigates positive change, addresses or creates an opportunity to move the community forward or is otherwise central to problem-solving. Emerging artists driven to explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work are a good fit for this program. Lanesboro Arts is also seeking artists whose work is inherently innovative and visionary, shows significant potential for growth and is accessible to people with diverse backgrounds. Engagement with the people and places of Lanesboro should be a core part of the artistic process of residency project proposals.

Lanesboro Arts is a non-profit, multidisciplinary arts organization working to weave the arts into the social and municipal fabric of Lanesboro, MN. Lanesboro Arts works closely with local government and cross-sector partners to activate the people and places of Lanesboro and contributes to a national model for rural sustainability. Lanesboro Arts work has been recognized by ArtPlace America, Americans for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2014, Lanesboro Arts was a recipient of a Bush Prize for Community Innovation.

The residency program was created in order to align with and amplify the Lanesboro Arts’ vision for rural communities to embrace artists as economic drivers, culture bearers, community builders, and problem solvers. The program has benefited 50 artists or artist collectives since its inception in 2001, ranging in media from painting, music, sculpture, dance, photography, film, theatre, design and fiber arts.

The Jerome Foundation, created by artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill (1905-1972), seeks to contribute to a dynamic and evolving culture by supporting the creation, development, and production of new works by emerging artists in Minnesota and New York City. The Jerome Foundation has generously provided support for the Lanesboro Artist Residency Program through 2020.

The application deadline for the 2020 Lanesboro Artist Residency is Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. CST. Complete program guidelines are available athttp://lanesboroarts.org. Eligible artists must submit their application through the online webform on the Lanesboro Arts website. Jury review will take place in August and applicants will be notified by September 13, 2019 at the latest as to the status of their application. Selected artist residents and runners-up will be notified by September 30, 2019.
