Mesa County Seeks Artists in Residence for 2018

970West Studio
Tom Freeman

Are you an artist in search of a steady gig right here in Mesa County? If so, the Mesa County Library is accepting applications for the 2018 artist in residence program.

Mesa County’s 970West Studio Artist in Residence Program seeks artists from several mediums including writers, musicians, videographers, sound technicians, and visual artists.

How long does the gig last? The program will select three artists for 2018, with terms lasting roughly 15 weeks.

How do you apply? Mesa County Libraries will accept applications through November 17, 2017.

Have you toured the facility yet? It really is quite impressive. I had the chance to attend the open house during its grand opening. The studio features:

  • 654-square-foot studio/training room
  • 436-square-foot control room
  • 245-square-foot for the artist in residence

This really is a unique opportunity. Granted, funds aren’t exactly a bottomless well of cash. Each artist will receive a $500 stipend courtesy of the Mesa County Libraries Foundation.

The 970West Studio really is a remarkable local resource. Put it to work. If you’re an artist, this residency might be precisely what you’ve been looking for.
