Since 2001, the Lanesboro Artist Residency Program has welcomed emerging artists of all disciplines to live, work and create in the rural context of the greater Lanesboro community.
Supported through 2020 by the Jerome Foundation, the Lanesboro Artist Residency Program awards two to three residencies per year to emerging artists with projects that activate the people & places of Lanesboro while instigating positive change. The program’s place-based and community-engaged focus is geared toward emerging artists that are driven to explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work. Artist Residents utilize a dynamic and compelling array of community assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation, while benefiting from dedicated live/work space and ample time to create.
The application deadline for the 2020 Lanesboro Artist Residency Program is Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 12 p.m. (noon) CST. The application window for 2020 residencies will open in February 2019.
Jury review process for 2020 residencies will take place in August 2019 and applicants will be notified by September 13, 2019 at the latest as to the status of their application. A phone interview process with finalists will take place in late September and selected artist residents and runners-up will be notified by September 30, 2019.
