The Lanesboro Jerome Artist Residency Program

web site

The Lanesboro Jerome Artist Residency Program, located in Lanesboro, MN (pop. 754), aims to provide an immersive, meaningful experience for emerging artists from Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City. The program is unique in that it provides an entire rural community and its myriad assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation, with staff working with each resident to create a fully-customized residency experience. Lanesboro Arts’ goal is to be flexible and accommodating to the artists, allowing them access to local resources needed for conceptualizing and realizing their place-based work. Lanesboro Arts recognizes “place-based work” as work that is specifically inspired by and designed for the place in which the work takes place; it can be a new project, or an interpretation of the artist’s current work tailored to engage the community of Lanesboro. The emerging artist residency program was designed to align with and amplify Lanesboro Arts’ vision for communities–especially rural communities–to embrace artists as economic drivers, culture bearers, community builders, and problem solvers.

The application deadline for residencies taking place in 2018 is July 31st, 2017 at noon. 

Jury review will take place in August and applicants will be notified by September 15, 2017 at the latest as to the status of their application. Selected artists residents and runners-up for 2018 will be notified by September 29, 2017.

Artists must be residents of Minnesota or the five boroughs of New York City to be eligible to apply. To be considered, eligible artists must submit their application through an online webform on Lanesboro Arts website. Complete program details are below.
