UND’s Museum of Art’s Artist-in-Residency Program Seeking Applicants


The University of North Dakota Museum of Art is once again sponsoring an artist-in-residency program. Applications to the program are now open.

Named McCanna House, the residency will offer artists, composers, and writers time to work in a setting that preserves the history and integrity of one of North Dakota’s first architect-designed, country homes surrounded by rich agricultural land. Margery McCanna, a long-time Museum patron, donated her 1920s French country-style home to the Museum upon her death. It was her wish the property be used as an artist-in-residence space. The home is located in western Grand Forks County in McCanna, North Dakota (approximately 35 miles west of Grand Forks).

The museum will be accepting applications until the end of December, and selecting artists after the New Year. The application fee is $35, plus a $100 cleaning fee if accepted. Residencies will be between three weeks and one month between May 29 – September 15, 2017.
