A Studio in the Woods Announces Changing Landscapes, Three Funded 6-Week
A Dialogue Between Art and the Environment
The world’s natural and built environments are endangered and the need to
seriously engage contemporary thinking about these disappearing landscapes
through the creation of art is of paramount importance. A Studio in the
Woods, located in the Louisiana wetlands, has observed firsthand the dynamic
nature of this rapidly changing territory which in turn affects the entire
northern hemisphere. We envision this as a powerful context for the
exploration of critical thinking, the development of new ideas and
strategies, and using the creative process as a catalyst for social change.
With this in mind, we invite artists to submit applications to our inaugural
environmental residency series entitled Changing Landscapes, addressing the
ecological challenges exemplified by Southern Louisiana. The call is open to
artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue
with environmental issues and a commitment to seeking and plowing new
ground. Artists are invited to design their own interface with the public
and are encouraged to propose ways to engage the larger community of New
Orleans and beyond.
Three six-week residencies which include a stipend and supply budget are to
be offered between November 2008 and April 2009. The deadline for
submissions is August 4, 2008.

Changing Landscape Residencies are funded in part by the Ford Foundation and
the National Endowment for the Arts.
