2014 California Academy of Sciences Residency

One Truth, Many Lies: A New View of Art & Natural History Collections, a new Artist Residency Program at the California Academy of Sciences is seeking applications from West Coast visual artists for 2-3 day residencies in the spring/summer of 2014.

Deadline to apply: December 13, 2013

This Residency is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services. Artists will receive an honorarium, and compensation for travel, lodging, meals, and incidentals for three days and two nights in San Francisco.

Selected artists will be required to present two programs during their residency, at least one of which must be a public educational program: A lecture or demonstration designed for the museum floor with general audiences in mind; And a hands-on workshop or other class offered free of charge to the public, and optimized for individuals to create and work collaboratively with the visiting artist. Programs will be arranged at scheduled times Thursdays through Sundays.

Significantly, artists will have at least one day to interact with researchers at the Academy and work with the research collections housed in the Academy’s Institute for Biodiversity Science and Sustainability. http://research.calacademy.org
