Artist Qualifications

At least one member of the household must demonstrate a commitment to the art form in order to qualify for residency. The creation and sale of one’s work does NOT have to be the source of income for the individual or the family in order to qualify. Please keep in mind that the intent is NOT to judge the content and relative quality of an applicant's creative work. The intent IS to gain an understanding of an applicant's commitment to a life in the arts as well as the applicant's desire to be a part of an active community of creative people committed to making a positive impact on the lives of their neighbors and their neighborhood. We will send you to another website where you will be able to fill out an artist application. You will need to answer 3 essay questions (with word length limitations), submit your resume/bio and upload your artwork.
