Thank you for your interest in working at Skidompha.
Opportunity for an Artist in Residence:
Skidompha Library invites artists in Lincoln County to apply for our new Artist in Residence Program. Individuals will develop a plan to utilize the library’s collection, create work that addresses the importance of intellectual freedom, and engage with our patrons, with an emphasis on working with local teens. The artist will retain ownership of the work they create, but will allow the library to put it on display for an agreed upon amount of time.
This position requires working eight hours per week for twelve weeks, beginning in January 2023. Scheduling is flexible but must take place at the library during library hours. While we encourage artists to create their own work, there will be an educational component as well. This should include opportunities for patron observation, participation, and instruction.
- Demonstrated experience as a working artist
- Experience working with teens/youth
- An understanding of current challenges facing public libraries
Interested candidates should send a resume, portfolio, and proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 20.
