[CALL] Lucas Artists Residency Program at Montalvo Arts Center

Attention Artists of all Disciplines!!
For the first time since reopening in 2004, the Lucas Artists Residency Program at Montalvo Arts Center is hosting an open application process solely for California artists. Through the generous support of the Irvine Foundation,  Montalvo Arts Center’s Lucas Artists Residency Program will be accepting applications from artists of any discipline residing in California.  The Lucas Artists Residency Program is a multi-disciplinary, international residency, seeking contemporary artists from throughout California who feel they could significantly gain from time in our program and also contribute to the Art Center’s activities through our Final Fridays program, our open house, public presentations, outreach, performance or through explorations of art on our 175-acre public park and historic site.
Montalvo Arts Center’s Artistic Programs develop from our residency. This coming year artists will explore the topic of wellness as we launch our 2013-14 thematic program: Flourish: Artists Explore Wellbeing. For 2014-2015 we will be examining change and innovation. If you address these topics in your own work and/or if you would like to explore them while in residency, please address this in your Letter of Intent.
Applications will only be accepted via Slideroom at: – deadline is January 25, 2013.  All past Lucas Artist Fellows or individuals currently enrolled in a degree program are not eligible to apply.  Selected artists will be announced in March 2013.
