MLK Days 2019 Residency Opportunity

Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center invites artists to submit a community arts project proposal inspired by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his life, his vision, his work. A modest honorarium and project budget will be provided. The project coincides with our annual MLK Days program in January, and may remain on display through February.

Artist must be willing to engage with visitors during the three days of the program. Residency length: minimum 3 days, up to 1 week. Annmarie's residency program provides a serene place on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay for visual, musical, and literary artists to design and produce a community arts project. Most artists run their project through Annmarie's creative reuse center, called the artLAB, where artists are encouraged to incorporate recycled or repurposed materials into their project. Artists will also have access to the galleries, a private studio space, the clay studio, the 30 acre sculpture garden, the waterfront area, etc. Residencies are meant to focus on community arts projects; those that merge arts and the environment are particularly desirable.
