Call for Artists: Mural Arts Philadelphia Fall Artist Residency at the Tacony LAB

This Deadline Expired: Monday, June 25, 2018

Deadline June 25: Mural Arts Philadelphia invites visual artists to apply for the Tacony LAB Community Arts Center 2018 Fall Artist Residency. This 12-week residency, running September 10-December 2 and housed in a storefront arts hub on the Torresdale Avenue Commercial Corridor in Lower Northeast Philadelphia, is a unique opportunity to combine personal practice, community engagement, and the creation of civically-focused public art. 

 

The resident artist will work with this historic and diverse neighborhood to develop an art project that brings community members together through collaborative creation, building relationships and encouraging neighborhood pride. The project must have a public visual component outside of the four walls of the LAB.

 

The artist selected for the residency will have access to the LAB studio space for both personal practice and project creation; the space will be shared with LAB art classes and workshops. The artist will receive a total stipend of $4,000, in addition to full funding for materials and supplies associated with project creation. The artist will be expected to spend approximately 15 hours per week on-site in the studio and the Taconyneighborhood. A portion of this time will be devoted to engaging the community through workshops with youth and adults, LAB open houses, relevant community meetings, and similar events.
