This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Launched in 2015 in conjunction with Panorama: Image-Based Art in the 21st Century, the Digital Artist in Residence Program consists of a $1000 award, paid opportunities to engage with MLAC audiences, and a virtual residency for artists utilizing digital technology as a primary medium, including video, animation, digital photography, interactive gaming platforms, virtual reality experiences, 360, motion capture applications, video-mapping and projections, and internet-based works, etc.

Adult fine artists utilizing digital technology as a primary medium of their artwork, who are not full-time students, living in the Mid-Atlantic Region are eligible to apply.

The residency does not include a studio or housing. It is intended to be a residency that promotes the artist’s work and provides opportunities for them to have paid engagements with MLAC audiences through teaching, lectures, demonstrations, and virtual experiences for the duration of one year. Artists receive cash award when the residency is completed and must participate in the residency for its entirety. Residency begins in September of 2017 and is completed in August of 2018.

While Main Line Art Center offers a limited budget for the presentation of artwork created for the residency, it may not have the capacity to cover all technical needs. Therefore, artists are expected to work with the residency’s budget and resources or provide additional resources on their own. When a specific project for presentation is agreed upon by the artist and Main Line Art Center, budget needs and required resources will be determined accordingly.

The application includes digital submission of the following:
Artist statement, biography, CV, 10 images/clips of artwork, statement of how the artist might engage with MLAC audiences over the course of one year.

The 2016 Digital Artist in Residence was Leo Hylan (Baltimore, MD)

APPLICATION FEE: $30 MLAC Members /$35 Non-Members
AWARD: $1000, public presentation of artwork, and one year virtual residency at Main Line Art Center (Sept. 2017 – Aug. 2018)
