RedLine Milwaukee accepting Artist in Residence applications

RedLine Milwaukee is now accepting applications for Mentoring and Emerging Artists. Artists remain “in residence” at RedLine for a two-to-three year period.

In addition to affordable studio space, the resident artists receive mentoring from five accomplished artists who are also in residence, along with guest artists of RedLine. Interactivity is a core element; artists engage in healthy art criticism and vibrant debate as they grow together as artists and as a community. The artists have the ability to participate in various educational forums, which allows them to learn new techniques and to hone their existing skills.

Resident Artists are chosen by a committee and sign an agreement detailing their residency responsibilities. Participation in the Artist in Residence program is determined by an equitable selection process.

Applications are due March 1. Visit RedLine Milwaukee online to download an application.
