Cerritos College Art Gallery is pleased to announce the establishment of an annual ART+TECH Artist-in-Residency program that will partner a local professional visual artist with the amazing technology resources available on the Cerritos College campus. This coming Fall 2014 semester, our partner will be the Engineering Design Technology department at Cerritos College (with future annual partners to include Automotive Technology, Machine Tool Technology, Welding, Woodworking, etc).

RESIDENCY DESCRIPTION

This year's residency provides the selected artist/collective with extended access to the college's state-of-the-art engineering design software and industry-scale 3D printers. The paid residency ($2,000) will include artist-led workshops with advanced fine art & technology students, as well as an exhibition/catalog of work­­­ produced during the residency period, to be held at the gallery in early Spring 2015.

Note: No prior experience with engineering design software/hardware required. Instead, we are looking to partner with a creative artist that is interested in realizing innovative aesthetic forms and/or addressing pertinent social concerns using non-traditional technology-based tools/materials. 

CONDITIONS OF RESIDENCY

The selected resident will be awarded a $2,000 honorarium at the end of the Residency Period to cover personal costs of the residency. The college will not arrange, nor provide reimbursement for, any travel or room & board expenses on the applicant's behalf, nor will the college be financially responsible for such expenses.

Workshop and lab times are flexible, but the resident is expected to work with the Art & Technology faculty/staff to provide the most effective interaction with participating students, as well as to avoid conflict for resources from non-participating courses. The resident should expect to be on campus for a minimum of 16 hours per week (from Nov 1 - Nov 22), though more is possible, depending on the scope of the resident's project and availability of technology labs.

In addition to the honorarium, the college will cover the material costs of all residency production, such as ABS/PLA filament (up to, but not to exceed, $500), as well as the costs of exhibition promotion (announcement cards, opening reception, etc.) and will provide 5 free copies of the exhibition catalog to the resident.

Individuals who are offered the residency may be required to obtain fingerprints for a criminal history clearance through the State Department of Justice and remit the required fee for processing the fingerprints, produce an original social security card, and submit negative TB test results before the residency may begin.

Note: Acceptance of Residency includes willingness and ability to participate in the associated exhibition, even though it takes place after the initial residency period (January 2015) and willingness to contribute to the exhibition catalog, as well as willingness to donate at least one piece produced during the residency period to the college art gallery's permanent collections.

APPLICATION DEADLINE

In order to be considered during the selection review period, the applicant must submit all required materials and information by 11:59 PM (PST) on July 31, 2014.
