Apply to Become Richland Library’s Next Artist-in-Residence

ArtIn an effort to showcase the talents of area artists and provide a direct connection to the local arts community, Richland Library is currently accepting applications for our next artist-in-residence.

The focus of this residency, which runs July - December 2021, is highlighting the power of hope and resiliency within our local arts community.

Responsibilities consist of:
-serving as a liaison between the library and area artists
-curating experiential content, such as hands-on workshops, art-making tutorials and studio tours
-working closely with our arts librarian to offer programs, which are free and open to the public
-hosting office hours to share expertise with others and answer questions

The residency also includes an online gallery exhibit of the artist's work on the library's website as well as a monthly stipend, and we plan to safely offer a studio space, once again, at our Main location (1431 Assembly Street).

The library encourages artists spanning all mediums (traditional/fine art; sculpture; performance; filmmaking; musical; etc.) to apply. The deadline is Tuesday, June 15, 2021. Applications and additional information are available at

Initially developed in September 2016, the concept behind Richland Library's artist-in-residence is to establish partnerships with local, working artists and to provide creative and educational opportunities to local residents in a way that supports cultural and artistic exchange.
