Tallgrass Artist Residency 2019

The Tallgrass Artist Residency is a unique program that offers artists of all disciplines an opportunity to live and research in the Kansas Flint Hills for two week periods throughout the Summer and early Fall. There is no application fee, but applications are due March 1, 2019 with notification in early April.

The Tallgrass Artist Residency is now accepting applications for our 2019 cycle. Learn more and find a link to apply on our website. The deadline is March 1, 2019.

Who Should Apply: The Tallgrass Artist Residency seeks to create connection and conversation across the Great Plains. We welcome applications from artists/art teams who currently live in a place that is ecologically considered prairie (← click the link to see a general map of this area). Ideal applicants will have a strong body of work with a unique voice or perspective, a dedication to exploring place, and an interest in participating in a contemporary dialogue.

Commitments: We will invite 8 artists/artist teams to participate in two-week residency periods between May and September, 2019, with lodging provided at Matfield Station in Matfield Green, Kansas. Residents are expected to give a public program of their choosing during this two-week period at one of our partner venues. They are also expected to participate in a group exhibition and artist symposium on Saturday, October 12, 2019, with up to two nights of lodging provided.

Program Description: The Tallgrass Artist Residency is a unique program that offers individual artists/artist teams time and space to retreat and research in a rural, tallgrass prairie setting. Though the experience is rural, it is not meant to be isolating. Our team in Matfield Green, KS welcomes residents and helps in orientation to the Flint Hills region. We also have a great network of regional partners, including the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission, Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, The Volland Store, The Bank Art Space, and the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art.

Please reach out by email with any questions about the program or applications process. Thank you for your interest in the Tallgrass Artist Residency and the Flint Hills of Kansas.

With gratitude,

The Tallgrass Artist Residency Leadership Team
