Border Art Residency
This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 23, 2021
The Border Art Residency, a non-profit organization affiliated with the El Paso Community Foundation, offers a selected artist a period of retreat for creative work in a living/studio space in the heart of El Paso, Texas. Resident artists are provided with a fully furnished living/working space, a monthly stipend of $600, and all utilities paid (except phone and Internet). The living space is a fully furnished 11 x 16’(Approximately) studio apartment.
Through a newly formed partnership with Artstream, a transformative learning program supported by the El Paso Community Foundation, visiting border artists will be able to share their art and thinking process, and stimulate dialogue with learners in the El Paso area. Artstream collaborates with artists and participating schools or cultural organizations. It will help the residency artist connect to the El Paso community by sharing how they see, hear, and feel our experiences with empathy, criticality, and nuance. Artstream has worked with the El Paso Museum of Art, UTEP’s Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens, Rio Bosque Wetlands Park, elementary schools, and well as the federal prison system.
