Thu, 04/02/2015 - 4:51pm
The University Art Galleries is sponsoring the 2nd Northern Plains Indian Artist Residency at the University of South Dakota. The postmark deadline is fast approaching (April 3, 2015).

Northern Plains Indian Art Residency: The Contemporary Native Arts Program (CNAP) at the University of South Dakota (USD) seeks applicants for the Northern Plains Indian Artist Residency (NPIAR). Artists who are registered members of a tribe in the Northern Plains region are eligible to apply for the residency. The artist-in-residence will spend the entire month of June living and working at USD, located on the banks of the Missouri River in Vermillion, South Dakota. The artist will be expected to work on a new or ongoing visual arts project.
This prestigious artist residency includes a generous stipend package, including a general living stipend of $3,000, a materials stipend of $3,000 and a technology stipend of $3,000. All food and lodging is covered by the CNAP program for the artist's four week stay. The artist will use the USD art department facilities to work towards the completion of their visual art project. The goals of the CNAP program at USD is to support Native artists from the upper Midwest, including those interested in combining traditional native arts practices with new media approaches, technology-based methods, or artists wishing to broaden the distribution of their art using technology and/or social media. The purpose of the Northern Plains Indian Artist residency is to encourage Native artists to access and use technologies for the preservation, dissemination, and enhancement of their artistic work. The CNAP program also encourages emerging and mid-career American Indian artists from the upper Midwest to recognize their audiences and develop a career path that is successful according to their own assessment of artist purpose and wellbeing. The residency will offer guidance on how to develop career plans and trajectories in either commercial or nonprofit sectors.
To apply for the residency, please view the attached application form. Applications must be postmarked by April 3, 2015. Also, please review our Contemporary Native Arts page at http://www.usd.edu/fine-arts/uag/contemporary-native-arts-program to learn more about the residency.
