Artist Residencies: Minnesota Center for Book Arts (Spring 2017)

Application Deadline: October 30, 2016

MCBA envisions a world where book art is created, cultivated, celebrated and understood as a vital and lasting expression of culture. While integrating the elements of papermaking, bookbinding, printing, typography and graphic design, MCBA supports the limitless creative evolution of the book format. MCBA typically offers residencies in the Spring (January–April) and Summer (May–August) of each calendar year. Duration of a residency can be from 2 weeks to 3 months and is at the discretion of the artist, but should be based on the scope of their proposal.
