Artists' residency, technology to blend for innovation
TRIBUNE-REVIEWMonday, January 19, 2009
The "Old and New Media Residency" enables artists based in Pittsburgh to take three months to work on projects in deeplocal's office and Encyclopedia Destructica's studios. During the residency, an artist would network with deeplocal's clients, get help with applying for grants and be introduced to people interested in art through an artist lecture and exhibition.
Artists will have access to deeplocal's technological tools and Encyclopedia Destructica's print-making equipment. They'll get up to $1,500 for supplies and receive artist access to Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Staff at deeplocal will dedicate a day each week to assisting the artists and teaching business principles.
Like what's posted on this blog and the website http://www.pghgalleries.com/ ? This is a volunteer effort so donations of any size are welcome which can be made via paypal here .
