Resident Artist Research Project
The Bell Museum Resident Artist Research Project (RARP) offers artists an exclusive opportunity to engage with University researchers and scientific collections while exploring the application of art as a medium for interpreting science in the public realm.
2017/2018 Call for Artists
The Bell Museum is seeking to fill four artist residencies that will take place between January 2017 and May 2018. Residencies are open to dynamic candidates of any artistic discipline including writers, poets, storytellers, dancers, designers, map-makers, musicians, painters, sketchers, video and film artists, as well as artist collectives.
Artists will work collaboratively with the Bell Museum public programming team, as well as the museum's curatorial, academic and research staff—and possibly each other. Four resident artists and two showcase artists will be selected from the pool of applicants.
Applications will be accepted through November 28, 2016. Interviews will take place the week of January 9, 2017.
