The Friends of Loring Park in conjunction with Minneapolis Park and Rec Board are pleased to request applications for the 2019 season of The Loring Park Guest Artist Program.  This summer will be our fourth year hosting the program.  The recipient of the fellowship will be offered use of the Performance Building in Loring Park as a studio for a three month residency which will conclude with an exhibition or performance and reception in the Loring Park Community Arts Building. This program is open to artists of all disciplines.

Applications are due May 5 and will be reviewed by a selection committee.

The residency season is July 1 - Sept 30, 2019 


This program intends to facilitate an engaging tradition of unique and varied creative projects arising from a dialog between Loring Park and the individual vision of Twin Cities artists.   We believe that this residency is a unique opportunity to support local Twin Cities artists as well as establishing a vital link between public parks and the arts.
