Eliot School Announces New Annual Artist in Residence Program, Issues Call for Proposals

The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts, the 341-year-old Boston-based art center, is launching its new annual Artist in Residence program with a call for artists’ proposals by January 31, 2018 for residencies in 2019 and 2020. Artists in Residence will partner with the Eliot School’s Teen Bridge program, which brings a small group of passionate teens from Boston schools to its Jamaica Plain schoolhouse, where they participate in a rigorous arts program that combines skill building, mentorship, employment and intensive art enrichment opportunities. Application details can be found here: https://eliotschool.org /artists-residencies/proposals. Sculptor Nora Valdez will kick off the first residency in 2018 on the theme of home. Through this project, Nora and Teen Bridge youth will initiate a public dialogue by exploring the questions: What makes a place home?
