We are currently accepting applications for the 18st AIRSpace artist in residence program. Applications are due January 31, 2017 for residencies June 2017 – May 2018.
The 18st AIRSpace is the Plano Public Library System’s artist in residence program. The 18st AIRSpace provides hands-on opportunities for the artists and the community to engage with one another. The community can watch the artist at work, see the artist’s work on display, do the make and take activity and participate in depth hands-on workshops. The make and take activities are offered daily and the workshops are offered twice a month. Both components reflect the artistic style of the artist. The community gets to engage with the artists and experience different types of art for free. The 18st AIRSpace is housed at Harrington Library. Artists work at least 16 hours per week in the 18st AIRSpace when the library is open and are paid a stipend. There is also an allotment for materials. Residencies last one to three months. More information about the 18st AIRSpace can be found on our website under Art in the Library.
