· Individual studio + bedroom + $200 stipend
· Culminating gallery show, performance & reading at Stewart Art Gallery

During the summer, Grin City invites eight college level writers, visual or performance artists for a special, subsidized 4-week residency. Artists accepted into the Emerging Artist Residency receive individual housing and studio space. The residency ends in a final group show and reading in the downtown Stewart Art Gallery.

Ideal candidates for the Emerging Artist Residency have a strong portfolio and are serious about pursuing a career in their field for which they are applying, but do not need to have majored in it. They embrace artistic and work-based collaboration and feel they match Grin City’s creative mission. Those eligible for the Emerging Artist Residency are juniors or seniors in college at the time of application and must be 21 or older on or before June 15 (please do not email asking about age exceptions).

Grinnell College students are strongly urged to apply. Sponsored by Grinnell College, Grin City Collective will select one eligible Grinnell College student of exceptional quality for its 2015 EAR residency.

If you are interested in applying to the Emerging Artist Residency please read our Residency Guidelines to make sure Grin City is right for you. RESIDENCY GUIDELINES

Orange County is seeking qualifications and images from artists interested in providing public art for a new Community Center in Holden Heights. After looking at images of current and past work, the selection panel will ask three or four artists to make a site-specific proposal for art that they would provide. An honorarium of $500 is given to each finalist for making a proposal. One artist will be commissioned based on their proposal. The final artist selected will be paid nearly $50,000 to create and install the work they proposed. Deadline, March 9. Email for full details.

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Prince George’s Department of Parks and Recreation invites individual artists and artist teams with interest in and/or professional experience in creating public art and site specific commissions, to submit proposals for the William Beanes Community Center.
