Kutztown residency – get some money, do a project, get a show


Here’s a wonderful residency opportunity very nearby — at Kutztown University of Pensylvania, which is about an hour and a half from Philadelphia by car. It’s a generous amount of money to create a project that will then be exhibited at the college’s art gallery. Below are the particulars. Deadline for applications is June 11.

The Sharadin Art Gallery at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania requests proposals from artists, craftspersons, and designers for the production of an original, temporary, site-specific installation for our exhibition space.
The artwork will remain on view from January 28 – March 4, 2011. The selected artist (or artist team) will be awarded $10,000. The award must cover all material and labor costs associated with the production of the work, all travel expense to and from our site, all incidental costs, meals, and all artist fees and honoraria. The university will provide housing one block from the gallery (Main Street Inn) for one artist — all remaining housing costs for additional artists and/or support personnel must be covered from the $10,000 award. A group of Kutztown University students will be available to assist with the physical production of the selected proposal.

Application deadline is end-of-business, Friday June 11, 2010.  Please see complete details here.  NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE.
