MCBA / Jerome Foundation Book Arts Mentorship Series VII

Applications now being accepted

The Book Arts Mentorship at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts is an artist development program aimed at introducing book arts to emerging artists whose primary medium is in another discipline. There are many reasons to explore book arts as a new artistic medium. As a highly malleable and versatile form of expression, book arts extend the possibilities of other art forms. You can create a conceptual space. Experiment with sequence and visual or verbal narrative. Use book art forms to extend, explore, document or reexamine work produced in other artistic disciplines. Book arts projects funded by thirteen series of Fellowships and four prior series of Mentorships range from exquisitely crafted fine press volumes and sculptural books to documented performances and one-of-a-kind installations that “break the bindings” and redefine conventional notions of book form.

Application deadline: Tuesday, September 4th, 2018; 11:59 pm

Roulette's Commissions and Residencies Program

In partnership with the Jerome Foundation since 1983, Roulette has founded both a Commissioning Program for four artists annually (officially established in 1997), and an Artist Residency Program for five artists annually (established in 2010). These programs accelerate the careers of talented musical creators, giving them the financial and technical resources to create early signature work in our state-of-the-art theater.

While commissions are selected by a committee of nominators, and residencies are selected by our Artistic Director, we are always excited to learn about NYC artists creating new, experimental musical work. Please email with a proposal and work samples to introduce yourself to us!
