2017 Jerome Emerging Artists Residency (August) - For MN and NYC Artists

web site

Deadline February 15, 2017

ELIGIBILITY: Through the financial generosity of the Jerome Foundation of St. Paul, residency-fellowships for the Jerome Emerging Artists Residency at the Anderson Center are awarded to emerging artists in all disciplines who live in Minnesota and New York City. There is no exact and singular definition of an emerging creative artist. This residency supports those artists who show significant potential, yet are under-recognized. Examples of recognition include exhibitions, critical reviews, commissions, performances, grant awards, residencies, fellowships, publications, and productions. References, individuals familiar with an artist's work, are also an important component of the eligibility decision. Career stage is a factor but not a limiting one. Many emerging artists fall in the early career category but not all do. Age is not a factor in determining an emerging artist. The term emerging refers to artistic development, professional accomplishment, and recognition.

The Jerome Foundation Emerging Artists Residency for August must be submitted by February 15, 2017. Applications must be complete on or before the deadline in order to be considered in the judging period. There is no fee for applying to this residency program. The fellowship includes room, board, quiet workspace, travel expenses and a weekly stipend.

A completed application form includes a resume, CV, or biographical statement (3 pages maximum); work plan; and work sample. Incomplete or late applications will not be reviewed by the panel. You may begin your application, leave and return as many times as necessary to complete the form PRIOR to clicking the submit button at the bottom of the completed form. Important: do not submit your application form until you are completely finished editing as your application will be finalized at that time.

The Resume, CV, or Biographical Statement is a Word or PDF document that shows education, work experience, publications, awards, and previous residency experience.

The Work Plan is one to two page page Word or PDF document. Write about your work, yourself, and your current thinking about what you’d like to accomplish at the Anderson Center as clearly and concisely as possible. The document can be single-spaced.
