Total Media - Minimum: 10, Maximum: 10 


Many of Watershed’s summer residency sessions are organized by artists—who propose a theme related to clay and recruit a handful of other artists to join them for two or three weeks. We call these Artists Invite Artists (AIA) Groups. The balance of participants in each AIA session register independently, often drawn by a shared interest in the session theme. Once at Watershed, all artists work side-by-side in the Watershed studios, forming one community.

An AIA session provides an opportunity to gather with colleagues you know or to spend time with artists whose work you’ve admired from afar. The lead artist and group of invited artists can collectively shape a creative thematic retreat without the pressure and preparation involved in leading a typical training or workshop. AIA sessions are inspired and guided by the leading artists, but time is spent in shared exploration and dialogue in the studio rather than in formal instruction. While clay is core to the Watershed experience, some AIA artists work in other media as well.

To submit a proposal, you must develop a session theme and recruit at least four (and up to 8) other artists to participate in the session.  As the AIA leader, you attend the residency free of charge and your AIA invited artists receive a 15% discount off their residency fees.

Applications to organize a residency are due annually on June 15 in the year prior to the residency. Applicants will be notified in August of their status. For more information on how AIA sessions work, please visit the Watershed website at http://www.watershedceramics.org/residencies/organize-a-residency/

Residency: The DoSeum has money for their artists-in-residence (San Antonio, TX)

The DoSeum seeks to partner with professional mid-career artists who revel in the challenges of creating socially engaged works of art that allow children and their families exposure to Contemporary Art. By interacting with the artist’s work, children will appreciate both artistic process and product permitting the experience to connect them, through the arts, with STEM and Literacy themes.

In particular, the 2018 Artist(s)-in-Residence will become key members of The DoSeum’s Tricentennial Team, and will contribute their work to our Summer 2018 Tricentennial exhibit. As the only museum poised to celebrate the 300 years of San Antonio with a forward look at the future, this exhibit will empower visitors to imagine their desired future, and then begin to practice the skills necessary to achieve their future. We are specifically looking for local and regional artists who are prepared to engage the public with experiences that help our guests reflect on what we all want for our future and what we can each contribute to building that future together.

Lots has been written about 21st Century skills-- that wide range of skills that we consider necessary for a happy and successful future. For the Tricentennial exhibit, these skills have been pared down to include the following ones that we wish to engage our guests with. Potential artist(s)-in-residence and their work should respond to one or some of these skills: Problem-solving, Maker-based and DIY approaches, Actions & Consequences, Forecasting, Decision Making, and Empathy.

Additional information that will aid in understanding what we have in store for our Tricentennial Exhibit are the following goals for the project. When visiting the exhibit, guests will:

*Understand how problems are solved in many different ways over time.
*Have imagined their vision of the future and seen this vision as important and relevant.
*Have collaborated and communicated together to create the best possible future.
*Have practiced the skills necessary to achieve their vision of the future.
*Feel empowered that their vision of the future could happen.
*Want to get involved with the city’s future through different organizations and civic participation.
*Eligibility

Winning Projects

The DoSeum’s arts committee and staff will convene to review and select from the received proposals with the possibility of artists having the opportunity to present personally in front of a convened committee. We encourage ambitious, yet realistic, project proposals that aim to engage children and their families in ways that fulfill the museum’s mission and vision as well as the Tricentennial exhibition standards and objectives. The DoSeum highly encourages projects with components that promote thoughtful public impact, including a significant outreach or interactive component. This could range from visits to local schools, workshops, public lectures, or other interactions that engage public participation and further involve the public in the artist’s creative process and final product.

The DoSeum will value the proposals by assessing feasibility, alignment with museum’s Mission, Exhibition Policy and Educational focus selecting up to two final projects. The selected Artist(s)-in-Residence will receive an honorarium of up to $6,000.00 and production costs of up to $10,000.00 to aid them in the execution of their project(s). Upon contractual agreement, the artist(s) will have the fall of 2017 and the spring 2018 for design, prototyping, and production. Winning Artist Residents will be showcased within the Tricentennial Exhibit slated for the summer and fall of 2018 in our travelling exhibit gallery.

Each residency culminates in a professionally produced, student-created presentation at the Skirball Cultural Center.

What is street art? Who speaks and who decides what counts as art? One class of high school students will embark on an immersive investigation of muralism, street art and the many other rich traditions of public artistic expression across Los Angeles and Mexico. Two Skirball exhibitions presented as a part of Pacific Standard Time: Los Angeles/Latin America will serve as an entry point and framework for this residency—Another Promised Land: Anita Brenner‘s Mexico and Surface Tension by Ken Gonzales-Day. Guided by a teaching artist, students will explore the contemporary relevance of street art and design in our city, creating original work that shares their stories of life in Los Angeles.
