LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Neon Museum is opening entries for its 2021 National Artist Residency.
The program will span six weeks from Oct. 25 - Dec. 5.
The program is designed to expand the museum's collection while giving an artist the opportunity to create new pieces and work in an unconventional setting.
The artist may work in digital, performance, or visual arts.
The Neon Museum will provide the selected candidate with:
- $2,500 stipend
- Up to $3,000 materials
- $800 travel allowance
- Living accommodations for four weeks at Juhl, a high-rise condominium tower in downtown Las Vegas
- A 1,000-square-foot studio space inside the museum
- Access to the museum's sign collection and archives
Public programming includes an educational workshop, an artist talk at the beginning of the residency to introduce the artist’s work to the community, and a studio open house to showcase the final project inspired by the museum collection at the end of the residency.
Artists will be requested to contribute a piece of art to the museum at the end of the residency.
Applications are due July 11. For more information visit: https://www.neonmuseum.org/education/artists-in-residence
