Tough Art Residency

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh announces a request for proposals for its annual Tough Art Residency Program. The residency invites artists to work in the museum to develop and create artworks that will be exhibited fall/winter 2020.

This residency offers a $5,000 honorarium, $3,500 materials budget, access to fabrication facilities, marketing and documentation services, and an opening reception. Out-of-town artists are provided with housing and transit to/from Pittsburgh. The residency runs June through mid-September 2020; artists are expected to be in Pittsburgh for the duration of the residency.

Members of the museum’s exhibition staff work hand in hand with artists to produce interactive and innovative artworks that have a direct impact on the visitor experience. Throughout the residency, artists work collaboratively with staff to build prototypes, test ideas on the museum floor, and fabricate and install a finished work that is “tough” enough to thrive in a hands on environment.

We seek submissions from artists who represent the broad spectrum of the greater artist community. We value diversity in age, gender, ethnicity and gender expression as well as diversity in medium.

Application Deadline: Received by March 8, 2020

Duquesne University/August Wilson House Fellowship

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

For artists of color who will carry out their creative work and share it with the community

Launched in 2018 with U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey as the Inaugural Fellow, the Duquesne University/August Wilson House (DU/AWH) Fellowship provides opportunities for artists of color in varied media to engage in cultural and artistic expression. The Fellowship advances the Fellow's work and serves the joint interests of Duquesne University, August Wilson House, and the community. The Fellowship is designed to bring national and regional artists and scholars into a collaboration between the famed playwright's Hill District neighborhood and educational and artistic institutions.

Supported by a grant from the Nancy Jones Beard Foundation, DU/AWH Fellows serve as artists/scholars-in-residence. Fellows live on Duquesne's campus while developing their own creative work and participating in educational events with the University, the August Wilson House, and the community.

The Fellowship program furthers Duquesne's Signature Partnership with the August Wilson House. Fellows are invited to create and/or share their work with Duquesne University and with the community. Fellows will have access to Duquesne's resources for scholarly research and public programs and reside on Duquesne University's campus during their fellowship.

Duquesne has partnered with the August Wilson House since 2011, with students and faculty from its Honors College. In this Signature Partnership, Duquesne University supports the programs of August Wilson House to pay tribute to the playwright's legacy, art, and historic presence.

Prizes Details: 

Commensurate with experience and scope of project.
