3. ART RESIDENCY
 
The residency is an immersive art creating experience which allows the artist to focus on creating a body of work, and which culminates in a gallery show of the artist's new work. The goal of the residency is to jump-start or boost the career for a promising artist.
 
RESIDENCY AWARD TIMELINE We hope to offer our first residency in 2018. Please come back for more information or join our list for email notification.


 

4. SIGNIFICANT WORKS PROGRAM
 
This program provides for the commission or acquisition of a large work of art from a mid-to-late career artist. The goal of the Significant Works Program is to allow experienced artists an opportunity to create their dream project--one that will be ultimately be shared with the public as part of the Vision of the Arts Collection.
 
ACQUISITION TIMELINE We hope to acquire our first significant work as early as 2020. Please come back for more information or join our list for email notification.
