Call for Artists: 2019 Merriweather District Artist-in-Residence Program


Entry deadline: February 4, 2019

We are thrilled to renew our collaboration with the Howard Hughes Corporation for the second annual Merriweather District Artist in Residence Program (MD AIR). Up to three artists will be selected from entries submitted nation-wide and provided with a $10,000 stipend, studio space and housing to spend up to six weeks in residence, from May 13-June 24, 2019. MD AIR is open to local, national and international artists working in all media including, but not limited to, performance, video, 2-D and 3-D visual arts, dance, music, and the spoken word. The highest priority will be given to artists who intend to produce works that reflect innovative approaches, new media and multidisciplinary art forms.

Now in its second year, the 2019 MD AIR program is designed to nurture the creative inspiration of artists as they are invited to experience Downtown Columbia as an evolving urban center and burgeoning creative hub.
