Art Center of Corpus Christi Residency for National/ International Visual Artists

Corpus Christi, TX - United States

Deadline: May 16, 2024


The Art Center of Corpus Christi (ACCC) is taking applications from practicing national and international artists for an Artist in Residence Program offered in collaboration with Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi’s Center for Coastal Studies (CCS). The program runs for 2 weeks including a 5-day stay at the Laguna Madre Field Station (LMFS), an off-grid research station built on an island in the Laguna Madre, to create art inspired by the unique ecosystems of the Laguna Madre. For a 1-week period following the stay at LMFS, ACCC will provide the artist with dedicated time and space for place-based reflection and inquiry for creation of artworks that drive conversation about the beauty of the Laguna Madre and its conservation. Completed works will be exhibited in a solo exhibition at ACCC. Thanks to a grant from the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation, this residency includes a stipend of $4000.
