Title: ArtPort Residency for artists (at LGA)
Post by: Shelby2 on March 05, 2019, 07:16:45 PM
3 month residency with $6500 stipend
deadline March 8, 2019


The  ArtPort Residency - a  program of the Queens Council on the Arts (QCA)  in collaboration with the Port Authority New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), LaGuardia Airport – offers a unique opportunity to a Queens artist to interact with the thousands of visitors that come through the region daily within the airport, and bring an engaging cultural experience to the space.

The ArtPort Residency is housed in the rotunda of the landmark Marine Air (Terminal A). During the 3-month residency period, the artist will set up a public studio to create new work in a dedicated 110-square foot space within the Marine Air Terminal, where passengers will be encouraged to engage in conversation about the project with the artist and view works in progress.

Artists chosen for the ArtPort Residency are asked to produce work that is inspired by and provides a gateway into the dynamic cultural life of Queens. Resident artists will have access to the studio for 3 months to create new work and present to the public, and receive a stipend of $6,500.
