Residency Opportunity Description:
Selected artists-in-residence will enjoy in a generous sized, private live/work studio complete with kitchen and bathroom. Located in downtown Omaha’s historic Old Market, the 110,000 square foot facility is able to accommodate a broad range of artistic activity. Artists-in-residence have 24-hour access to extensive installation and production spaces and the Okada Sculpture & Ceramics Facility, a large industrial space used for fabrication. This independently-driven atmosphere and communal environment encourage creative growth and experimentation to confront new challenges. This is a process-based residency; there is no expectation or promise of an exhibition in our first-floor galleries. Residents will receive a $750 monthly stipend to help with materials, supplies and living expenses while in residency. A non-restricted $500 travel stipend will also be awarded.
Artists who are interested in applying to both 2018 open call opportunities (January–April & May–August) will be required to submit a separate application and application fee for each designated session. In the event an artist is selected for both, the artist will be only able to select one session to attend.
