Mc Canna House Artist-in-Residence Applications Open

McCanna House Artist-in-Residence Application

Open to Artists in Music, Theatre, Literature, & Visual Arts


The North Dakota Museum of Art is accepting applications for the 2019 McCanna House Artist-in-residence season. Artists working in music, theatre, literature, or the visual arts are encouraged to apply. Open to artists in all stages of their career. Preference given to regional artists (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Manitoba), with remaining availability open to all. 

The 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.

THE PROGRAM The residency consists of 2 – 5 week blocks of time layered throughout the operating year. The house is open from June 1 through the end of September or early October. There will only be one artist on the property at a time, unless a group project is accepted. While there are no expectations for the artist to complete work during the residency, artists are asked only to use their time wisely, and be aware of the transformative potential of time spent there.

Annie Fitzgerald to perform in Fosston March 2

Join us as we welcome Annie Fitzgerald to the Fosston Library Arts Theater on March 2 at 7:00 pm! 

General Admission tickets are $10 and can be purchased in person at Generations for Him in Fosston.  Out of town guests can purchase tickets online at www.fclaa.org (select  “Annie Fitzgerald Tickets” under the Events tab).

Annie Fitzgerald has been described by Jamsphere as “a blend of Tori Amos’ intellectual appeal, Sarah McLachlan’s mystical charm and Edie Brickell’s baroque spirit.” Honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as an artist to watch, Fitzgerald released her second album You & Me & the Sun on June 1st, 2018. Produced by Danny O’Brien (The Farewell Circuit, Dem Yuut), the album finds Fitzgerald joining gifted musicians and shaping a textured pop sound mixed with the raw vitality of rock-and-roll. Since her first release In Good Time, Fitzgerald spent time a part of the NYC Indie scene, started a family, and welcomed a move back to her home state of Minnesota and a newfound sense of space to create. You & Me & the Sun explores connection, vulnerability, love, and sparks in the span of time navigating the balance between motherhood & her life as a songwriter.
