Kentucky School of Art Teaching Residency


Here is an email forwarded to Parallel University from the Kentucky School of Art at Spalding University: We are looking for an artist-in-residence to work with a group of students (15-20) on an urban community art project for six weeks in the spring of 2013.
·  The dates for the course and project are: March 18 – April 25.
·  The artist would meet with the students and work on the project Monday through Thursday from 12:30-4:00 p.m. and then during additional hours as needed
·  Spalding/KSA will provide the preliminary assistance as needed in terms of  developing the appropriate contacts and connections within the community.
·  Preferably the artist will have an MFA or 18 credits in graduate studio art, (but we are also willing to “prove-up” the artist if she/he does not have the necessary graduate credits)
·  Community art experience is a must, teaching experience is preferred
·  The artist will be provided with a stipend, housing, travel expense and materials for the project.  Of course this will all depend on receiving the grant, but it is our intention to pay the artist a fee of $5,000 and to have a material/supply budget of $3,000

The exact nature of the project would be up to the individual artist and could be an exploration of something they have already done in another community, or it could be something new and based on social, cultural, environmental issues specific to the neighborhood in which Spalding/KSA exists.

Rockaway Call for Ideas

Rockaway call for ideas

In an effort to foster the creative debate on urban recovery after Hurricane Sandy, MoMA PS1 and MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design initiated a call for ideas to create a sustainable waterfront. Artists, architects, designers, and others were welcome to present ideas for alternative housing models, creation of social spaces, urban interventions, new uses of public space, the rebuilding of the boardwalk, protection of the shoreline, and actions to engage local communities.

A jury including curators Barry Bergdoll, Klaus Biesenbach, Peter Eleey, Pedro Gadanho, Niklas Maak, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and other influential architects, urban planners, and designers made the selection from the open call.

Below is our submission, oddly it was not selected, however this was when the Wallace Classroom was first invented, so something came out of it.
