Artist Residency Deadline: 5pm Thursday, April 1, 2021
Overview: The Buchanan Center for the Arts seeks an artist for our Artist in Residence program in Monmouth, Illinois. The residency will run from approximately May-August (or until the project is completed). This residency is an opportunity for the artist to engage with the community to create public art in the city's downtown area.
We believe that art promotes social innovation, makes valuable contributions to society, and enriches our community. The selected artist(s) will have the opportunity to expand his/her own civic and social practice while creating a large scale mural. The goal of this residency is to infuse creativity and artistic perspectives into everyday life and to support artists who value community-building as part of their practice.
Selection Process: A selection panel comprised of members from the Buchanan Center for the Arts board of directors and community arts partners will review all the applications. The selection panel will review all submitted applications by the deadline of 5pm Thursday, April 1, with a final decision expected by Friday, April 16, 2021.
