ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM 

Immersive Van Gogh, the visually striking exhibition that invites audiences to step inside post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh’s incredible works of art, is inviting local area artists to apply to the Artist-In-Residence program in cities across the United States. Local artists can apply for the opportunity to create and cultivate their work in a unique space over the course of a month-long residency around the theme of van Gogh. This is a wonderful opportunity to build connections, expand creative networks, collaborate, and share work with other artists and the general public.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

All local artists are welcome to apply. In particular, we hope that this residency will inspire individuals whose art is influenced or inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s catalog of artwork. Artists should be local to the city where they are applying, should have an inventory of work to display and sell, be comfortable working within the venue in front of exhibit attendees and bring the necessary materials to create visual artwork onsite. Visual artwork in this instance is defined as painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, or crafts such as jewelry making.
