Kansas: Tallgrass Artist Residency

Recognizing that space, time and community are key ingredients for developing a creative career, the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC) has launched the Tallgrass Artist Residency. A partnership between KCAIC, the Center for Living Education at Matfield Green and the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University, the residency enables artists to live and work for two weeks between April and September in the Flint Hills region of Kansas, where they are surrounded by one of the last remaining tallgrass prairies in North America. The program seeks artists who spark “connection and conversation across the Great Plains,” and it is open to those from various backgrounds and career stages without limitation to their creative media and practice. Artists are selected by KCAIC and its local hosting partners—Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, The Bank Art Space, The Volland Store, and Prairieside Cottage & Outpost—which also furnish the residency’s living quarters. This year’s eight resident artists reconvene this month for a symposium at Kansas State University, and are showing their work through November at the program’s headquarters, The Bank Art Space, in Matfield Green, Kansas. For more information, contact KCAIC Director Peter Jasso.
