Neon Museum in Las Vegas Invites Applications for National Artist Residency

This Deadline Expired: Friday, February 7, 2020

Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is an organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts, and cultural enrichment. 

To that end, the organization is inviting applications for its National Artist Residency, which is designed to expand the interpretive potential of the museum’s collection while providing artists with the opportunity to create new work in an unconventional setting. The residency includes a stipend of $3,000 plus a modest budget for materials if required, an $800 travel allowance, one-bedroom apartment lodging with kitchen facilities in nearby downtown Las Vegas, and studio space comprising approximately 1,000 square feet within the Neon Museum’s 12,000-square-foot Ne10 Studio, access to onsite collection and archives, curatorial support as needed, marketing and publicity, and documentation.

The program is open to artists who are working in the fields of digital, performance, or visual art, and the chosen resident will be expected to reside in Las Vegas for eight weeks, from June 15 through August 7, 2020.

To be eligible, applicants must be over the age of 18 and based in the United States.

See the Neon Museum website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
