ArtWalk/Artist in Residence: Call for Proposals
Montgomery College, Rockville and Germantown Art Department is seeking proposals for its ArtWalk/Artist-in-Residence Program (AIR), with a focus on arts initiatives for public, social, or community based outdoor visual arts projects.
ArtWalk is a week to two weeks of public art in which art classes install outdoor public art or lead participatory art activities on the Germantown and Rockville Campuses. The Spring 2019 Artist in Residence (AiR) will work with students both inside and outside the classroom to create work that will engage students and AiR during the existing outdoor ArtWalk weeks on the Rockville and Germantown campuses. This collaborative work will use art and creative thinking to impact the community of students on each campus, and should focus on projects that culminate in activities and projects to be viewed or participated in outdoors.
The three-week Artist in Residence program of the Rockville and Germantown Art Department augments the studio arts curriculum by providing students with direct hands-on experience in the arts that is guided by visiting artists. This is accomplished by:
Enabling students to work with contemporary artists other than faculty, Fostering a vested commitment between artist, student and the educational setting of the College, and Enhancing the Department’s curriculum.
What we are looking for
We are seeking individuals or groups with a wide range of artistic practices outside the traditional studio arts foundation curriculum. Proposals should offer a mutually supportive creative learning environment between students, classes, and Artist.
Who may apply
Professional artists or Artists Groups in all visual arts disciplines who are interested in working with students are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants whose work and proposal expand on the working range of foundation level teaching.
A stipend of $3000 will be available for the three-week AIR, which includes transportation, installation of work, and compensation of time. Student materials for any proposed collaboration with students will be supported through a separate budget and will be determined based on the size and scope of the work.
Candidates should submit a proposal for collaborative processes and programming that provides foundation level students with direct hands-on experience in the arts that is guided by the Artist. The Spring 2019 ArtWalk/AIR will be focused on public, social, or community based outdoor visual arts projects on the Rockville and Germantown Campuses. Outdoor projects may include temporary installations, performances, participatory activities, and outdoor installation of the artist’s work. The Artist-in-Residence is asked to give an artist’s talk at the start of the residency and engage with students through workshops to prepare for ArtWalk.
Availability to work with students and classes
The Spring 2019 residency is tentatively scheduled the month of April. The dates of the residency include time to work with art students in the studio in preparation for ArtWalk and ArtWalk itself, which is scheduled for April 15 - 18 in Rockville and April 15 – 25 in Germantown. The selected Artist/Artist Group will be expected to be available during scheduled class times over the three-week programming. The Artist/Artist Group will be provided with a calendar of the Art Department’s scheduled classes and will consult with the Special Projects Coordinator in preparing a program that is compatible with this schedule.
Collaborative projects and installations are generally based on the Rockville Campus, but also include outreach to the Germantown Campus art classes for a portion of the residency.
