Overview: The Buchanan Center for the Arts seeks an artist for the new Artist in Residence program in Monmouth, Illinois. The residence will run from approximately September 1-November 21, 2020. This residence is an opportunity for the artist to engage with the community to create public art, teach classes at arts partner locations, as well as create a body of work for exhibition at the end of the program.
We believe that art promotes social innovation, makes valuable contributions to society, and enriches our community. The selected artist will have the opportunity to expand his/her own civic and social practice while teaching and working with our residents to create artwork. 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. Finalists may be selected to be interviewed by the selection panel in person or virtually. The selection panel will review all submitted applications by the deadline of July 7, with a final decision expected by Friday, July 31, 2020.
