The Kimball Art Center’s RELEVANT 2011 Artist-in-Residence program is designed to give five selected college and graduate-level art students the knowledge and platform necessary to become successful full-time career artists. Held in Park City, Utah this program provides participants in-studio sessions with mentors, panel discussions and networking events with art-industry professionals, and the opportunity to showcase their work at the 2011 Park City Kimball Arts Festival, held on August 5 – 7, 2011. This event is considered to be one of the top art festivals in the country in which approximately 50,000 art enthusiasts are expected to attend.
“When reviewing candidates for RELEVANT 2011, we will be looking for emerging cutting edge student artists dedicated to developing their artistic careers,” explains Erin Linder, Director of Exhibitions for the Kimball Art Center. “Kimball Art Center wants to inspire and steward the next generation of artists and bring forward new movements in visual arts.”
The RELEVANT 2011 application process is open through April 1st to all college and graduate art students 21 years of age or older. Spiro Arts will be providing studio space and lodging to RELEVANT 2011 artists. Spiro Arts at Silver Star was inspired by the belief that great art and thought deserves to be supported. The spirit and programming of Spiro Arts reflects our commitment to give artists an opportunity to spread their creative wings and explore.
