Artist in Residence Opportunity

The Taft Museum of Art would like to invite UCLA students, faculty, and alumni to create a submission for this year’s Robert S. Duncanson Artist-in-Residence program at the Taft Museum of Art in Cincinnati, Ohio.

To honor the relationship between African American painter Robert S. Duncanson (1821-1872) and Cincinnati art patron Nicholas Longworth (1782-1863), the Taft Museum of Art’s Robert S. Duncanson Society annually recognizes the achievements of a contemporary African American artist through the Robert S. Duncanson Artist-in-Residence program.

The ideal candidate for 2019 is a filmmaker. Documentary, experimental, narrative, and shorts are all acceptable formats. The purpose of the residency is to promote and develop a deepening awareness of African American art and artists and to inspire future generations. This year’s selected artist will have the opportunity to present their work and share their talents with the Cincinnati community for two weeks in October.

Deadline for submission is Friday, February 8, 2019.
