Collage Artist Residency: Money Money is a four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in June 2021.
During this project-driven artist residency, collage artists work together to create a series of collages that illustrate Eleanor H. Porter’s 1918 novel, Oh, Money! Money!. The result will be a book published by Kolaj Institute. The residency is being done in conjunction with “The Money $how” at Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The book will be released at an event in July.
The residency will unfold on four Saturdays where artists will convene in three-hour sessions. Artists will discuss the themes raised in Porter’s novel, hear from guest speakers, and collage together. Artists will take a virtual tour of “The Money $how” and receive a copy of the companion book. The group will collectively produce a series of twenty-six collages, one for each of the chapters in Porter’s novel.
Collage Artist Residencies are intended for self-motivated artists, at any stage in their career, who want to develop their practice by exploring a topic or working method and collaborating with others to produce a final product. Residencies are open to any artist over the age of 21 from anywhere in the world.
The cost of the residency is $500 per artist; however, no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package.
