In an effort to provide continued support to local artists and share their talents with the community, Richland Library is accepting applications for our next artist-in-residence in fall 2020, starting Saturday, August 1.
The focus on this particular residency, which runs from September 20 – December 18, 2020, is for the artist-in-residence to serve as a liaison to the local arts community and help the library assess the needs of other artists during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Responsibilities consist of:
- curating digital content, such as art-making tutorials and studio tours
- working closely with our arts librarian to offer online programs, which are free and open to the public
- hosting online office hours to share their expertise with others and answer questions
he residency also includes an online gallery exhibit of the artist’s work on the library’s website as well as a monthly stipend.
We encourage artists spanning all mediums (traditional/fine art; performance; filmmaking; musical; etc.) to apply. The deadline is Tuesday, September 1. Applications and additional information are available at www.richlandlibrary.com/services/become-artist-residence.
Initially developed in September 2016, the concept behind Richland Library’s artist-in-residence is to connect the community with local, working artists and to provide creative and educational opportunities to local residents in a way that supports cultural and artistic exchange.
