IN-STATE ARTIST

RESIDENCIES

artist-led, community-driven

IF you are passionate about leading community-engaged art projects in the state, SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT PROPOSAL BY JANUARY 14, 2019!

The Mississippi Museum of Art believes that wherever artists and artistic practice meet community, lasting transformation can occur. From 2018-2020, the Museum's Center for Art & Public Exchange is supporting artists through a series of short-term residencies of up to $10,000 in locations across Mississippi. Informed by community stories, artists will collaborate with members of the public to produce visual art that speaks to the aspirations and legacies of Mississippi people and places. 

 

Six communities—Hancock County, McComb, Meridian, Oxford, Stone County, and Utica—participated in CAPE-facilitated listening sessions in 2018. During the sessions, these communities shared local stories, challenges, and aspirations for the future. The results of the sessions are intended to provide source material to inform the artist’s proposal.
