Resident Artist Opportunity at Windward School in Los Angeles, CA (deadline: Friday June 29th)



The Installation Project at Windward School
Windward School, an independent college preparatory school for grades 7-­‐12 in West Los Angeles, invites artists to submit resumes for our artist-­‐in-­‐residence program, The Installation Project. The residency gives artists an opportunity to work with highly motivated students, and it gives the community an opportunity to watch and engage with artists as they create their work. We are currently seeking proposals for the 2012-­‐13 school year.
The work may be done by any variety of means and result in any variety of forms, so long as it provides opportunity for the community to actively engage in the artistic process. Artists specifically working in installations, new genres, new media and contemporary practices are encouraged to apply.
The artist will be given six weeks, Jan 3 to Feb 15, 2013, to install, perform, and/or display the work. The residency will include an opening, promotional materials, a stipend, and funds for materials. Arrangements will be made for the artist to formally meet with students, parents, and teachers to talk about their work, as well as work with teachers and students on their project.
Proposals are due Friday June 29th. Please submit a resume and examples of work (or website address) to Hannah Northenor, Visual and Media Arts Teacher, at `hnorthenor@windwardschool.org
