The LUX Center for the Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska is currently accepting applications for an artist-in-residence. One residency is available in painting, drawing, metals, fibers, or mixed media.
The deadline is November 1 for a January 1st start date. This residency will last a minimum of six months and a maximum of two years. Renewal of a resident’s original contract will be determined by LUX staff on a case by case basis. LUX residencies no matter the start date will ideally conclude in late July to allow new residents the opportunity to start simultaneously in August.
– All residents receive free studio space (shared or private depending on medium and space available) and 24-hour access and use of equipment in the studio area to which they applied.
– Residents have priority for paid, on-site teaching opportunities including community art classes for youth and adults. Residents with an MFA or BFA in painting, ceramics, or metalsmithing have the opportunity to teach college art classes for Doane University -Lincoln campus, held at the LUX.
– All residents are offered general representation in the sales gallery for the duration of their residency. Residents who stay for 6 months or more are offered a solo exhibition near the end of their residency term.
– Access to ceramics materials and firings at no cost and the opportunity to buy other materials from the LUX at cost.
A Master of Fine Arts is preferred, but not required. A desire to teach is a must. Residencies are granted based on quality of work and community-mindedness.
