Native American Artist-in-Residence program at Minnesota Historical Society – Call for Submissions 2017
January 23, 2017
The Minnesota Historical Society is currently seeking applications for the 2017 Native American Artist-in-Residence Program. In 2017, the program will award a number of residencies for Native artists engaged in traditional material artmaking and provide them stipends to connect with museum collections, peer artists, and/or other knowledgeable community members. Artists must currently reside in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, or South Dakota.
Although it is recognized that storytelling, song and dance are elements of traditional culture, and art forms in their own right, this residency is currently specific to traditional material arts.
The goal of the program is to create opportunities for Native artists to use collections and library resources in order to enhance their artwork and engage their community. Selected artists will receive a $25,000 stipend, plus additional money for travel.

Application Deadline is April 1, 2017.
Questions can be directed to 651-259-3281 or Benjamin.email@example.com.
