Through its partnership with Somerville Local First and its FREE community street festival, SomerFUN: A Romp For Independents, Artisan’s Asylum will be offering THREE artists-in-residence positions for the month of May. Selected artists will get to show work at SomerFUN in Union Square on June 11th in an Asylum-only gallery space.
Because we strive to break down the barriers between artists and their ability to create, the artists we select will receive:
- Free, keyed access to our facilities from the date of their acceptance until the festival
- A small ($100) stipend towards the cost of materials in order to create their works
In exchange, selected artists will agree to:
- Utilize Artisan’s Asylum tools and facilities effectively and respectfully
- Create large-scale, preferably interactive works of art or craft
- Attend the SomerFUN installation to show their work and engage with the Somerville community
If you are interested in applying to show work at SomerFUN, please fill out the application and return it by May 1st 2011. We will announce our artist selections no later than May 5th, 2011.
So what are you waiting for? Fill out the app!
