Deadline: February 22nd, 2016, midnight PST 

Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH) Art Works Residency: A summer residency where artists engage museum visitors in their work and transform the museum into functioning artist’s studios.

During Summer 2016 the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History’s (MAH) Solari Gallery will transform into a series of artist’s studios. In each studio, museum visitors will meet artists and participate in art works in progress. All artists will be expected to engage visitors as part of their work and are invited to engage the theme of building stronger communities and neighborhoods.

Program Description: The Art Works exhibition at the MAH is a four-to-twelve week residency program in which artists engage the public within the museum’s gallery. All artists will be expected to spend a substantial amount of time creating work within the studio gallery and create work that engages visitors. Artists will work with museum staff to create a studio environment within the space, speak with museum visitors about their work, exhibit works, offer gallery talks, and participate in hands-on activities with the public.

The Residency: Minimum residency is 4 weeks and the maximum is 16 weeks. The full exhibition will be June 1st to September 30th, 2016 with artists rotating throughout.

The residency includes

  • a $500 per month stipend (commensurate with length of your residency)
  • a public studio space within the Solari Gallery, and
  • a unique opportunity to bring public interaction into your work.

Housing is not provided.

Criteria and Considerations: The following considerations will influence who the museum selects for residencies:

  • Visual, sound, participatory, and social practice artists
  • A plan including visitor participation
  • Work that engages the theme of building stronger communities and neighborhoods
  • History of and interest in artistic collaboration
  • A mix of artists from within and outside Santa Cruz County
  • Artists of color, female, queer, and trans artists are encouraged to apply
  • To thoroughly reflect and engage our diverse community, we particularly want to encourage Latino, Chicano, migrant and Spanish-speaking artists

For full details, expectations, and how to apply: http://www.santacruzmah.org/art-works-exhibition-callout/

Applications are due by midnight PST Monday February 22nd, 2016 for consideration for the summer program. NOTE: Applications received by Monday February 8th, 2016 are eligible for early consideration. Artists under consideration will be selected for an interview during the week of February 29th. All artists will be notified of the results of the selection in the second week of March. If you have questions about the MAH Art Works Program, please email summer2016@santacruzmah.org

About the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History: We’re a different kind of museum, one that focuses on building community here in Santa Cruz County, California. We build community through exhibitions, events, and projects that connect people to art, history, ideas, and each other. We believe that art and history are for everyone, and we work hard to offer experiences that connect people from many walks of life: across generations, ethnicity, and background. That means multi-cultural festivals, exhibitions filled with wonder, partnerships throughout the county, and surprising, fun connections with people and ideas across our community.

Artist for Artists Project (CT), National Call for Submission: Williams Prize in Drawing Exhibition, 2016

3280Artist for Artists Project (CT), National Call for Submission: Williams Prize in Drawing Exhibition, 2016

Deadline: May 15th, 2016

The Williams Prize in Drawing for Emerging Artists is a celebration of drawing as a critical element in contemporary art making and as an art form with powerful expressive possibilities. The prize was designed to provide a venue through which emerging artists can share, on a national stage, both their unique visions and their drawing skills.

For the 2016 prize, artists have the opportunity to compete for one of the eleven monetary awards and selection by the juror for a spot in the William Prize in Drawing Exhibition, to be held June 28th – July 24th, 2016 at the Silpe Gallery at the Hartford Art School in West Hartford, CT.

The Williams Prize in Drawing for Emerging Artists is designed for applicants who are creating 2D drawings with either traditional methods, or more experimental contemporary approaches and materials, excepting digitally created or enhanced art. Drawing media that are encouraged include, but are not limited to, chalk, charcoal, color pencil, Conté, graphite, marker, metal-point, pastel, and pen & ink. There is no theme that must be suggested by the artist, but all art must be original and completed independently within the past 5 years (i.e. 2011-present). “Emerging artists” are those artists who self-identify as “emerging” rather than “mid-career” or “established” artists. Applicants may be recent graduates or currently enrolled in any BFA or MFA degree-granting art school in the United States, working in an “atelier” school, working independently on their art without any institutional affiliation, or even working in some teaching capacity. There are no upper age limits for artists.

The Awards:
First Prize: $1000
Juror’s Choice Awards: 10 awards, $200 each

The juror will select the drawings to be included in the Williams Prize in Drawing Exhibition. The juror has the freedom to include more than one drawing submitted by an artist in the exhibition. The monetary prizes will be awarded after the exhibition goes up and after the Juror’s Second Review.

-U.S. citizens at least 18 years of age and residing in the U.S. at the time of the project
-Strong record of artistic accomplishments with examples of international experience

Budget: The Artist will receive $7,000 honoraria for participation, plus an assigned budget for workshop and public art production costs overseas. This budget will be determined during a pre-travel proposal time period, based on approval by ECA, the respective U.S. Embassy, and ZERO1. The program covers airfare, accommodations, and basic travel costs.

Job- University of Arizona: Assistant or Associate Professor, Digital Artist (Tenure Eligible)

Deadline: February 1st, 2016, 11:59pm MST

The University of Arizona (UA) is assembling a team of transdisciplinary artists and scholars who can provide national leadership in computational media studies, an emerging research and teaching area in which computation supports the broad spectrum of arts, humanities, and social sciences. The faculty in this cluster will become the lead facilitators of a campus-­wide initiative to: (a) synchronize the study and teaching of mass and popular media that are digitally produced and/or digitally distributed; (b) produce and engage computationally­-based compositions by both students and faculty in a variety of media (e.g., film, video, music, games, literature, sculpture, illustration); and (c) coordinate the use of several valuable but underutilized media archives linked to the UA campus.

The successful candidate hired into the Digital Artist (Computational Media Cluster) position will work at the intersection of artistic production and computation. Specific areas of technological expertise are open, but applicants should demonstrate the innovative application of computational approaches to their research and practice in the arts, including but not limited to visualization, emerging media, visual arts, audio arts, performance, and/or installation. Desirable areas of expertise include experience in the integration of digital tools (e.g., coding, hardware design, rapid prototyping) with artistic production and/or performance, and online teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

The faculty member hired into this position will teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels within the School of Art and potentially one or more other academic units associated with the computational media cluster. He/she will also contribute to mentoring students, including those from underrepresented backgrounds. The faculty member will participate in outreach and contribute to departmental, college, and university service. Our faculty help to develop innovative approaches to enhancing student engagement, increasing diversity, and expanding collaborations with community and business partners.

Review of candidates begins February 1st, 2016. To view the full listing and apply for the Position, please visit http://uacareers.com/postings/6928

Minimum Qualifications: Terminal degree (MFA or PhD) in a field related to computational or digital art, and a professional record of research, creative activity, and exhibition/publication commensurate with an appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.
