Tacoma, Wash. (October 6, 2010)— The Museum of Glass announces its posting of the 2011 Application Visiting Artist Residency Program guidelines. Each year the Museum reserves a limited number of five-day residencies in its Visiting Artist schedule for experienced artists interested in the opportunity to work in the Museum’s Hot Shop. Applications will be accepted through December 15, 2010.

The program is open to artists who have at least five years experience working in the medium of glass. Selected artists will work in the Museum’s state-of-the-art Hot Shop with the assistance of the three-person Hot Shop Team for five days (Wednesday through Sunday) in front of a live audience. The residency also includes two days of cold working services, and artists have the opportunity to deliver a public lecture on Sunday afternoon. The value of the week-long residency is $25,000.

To apply, artists must submit a completed questionnaire along with a current résumé, artist statement, images of their work, and a full description of the work they plan to create during the residency. Application instructions are available on the Museum’s website: http://www.museumofglass.org/live-glassmaking/visiting-artists/residency-application/.
