IMA Accepting Proposals for 2011 Indianapolis Island Residency

Maybe you remember our post from last year about Indianapolis Island resident artists Jessica Dunn and Michael Runge? Well, now is your chance to take their place! The Indianapolis Museum of Art is currently accepting proposals for a new artist residency on Andrea Zittel's floating, livable sculpture. The call is open to artists from everywhere, not just Indiana. What are you waiting for? The full call for proposals appears below:

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is currently holding a call for proposals to customize and reside on Indianapolis Island. Students and recent graduates of art, architecture, and design are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to participate in this six-week residency. During construction and residency, the 2011 island resident(s) will be provided with a blog on the IMA website to be used as a platform to connect with an audience on a national and international scale.

Situated on a 35-acre lake in 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park, Indianapolis Island is an inhabitable structure complete with boat dock, sink, countertop, shelving, and an outdoor seating area. During its inaugural summer, the island was customized by Herron School of Art and Design (Indianapolis) students Jessica Dunn and Michael Runge who developed the conceptual basis for their own project titled Give and Take.

The summer 2011 resident(s) of Indianapolis Island will have the unique opportunity to use materials from the 2010 residency while introducing a project of their own to the island. The residency includes a $3000 materials budget and a $1500 personal stipend. Individuals, collaborative teams, and groups are encouraged to apply.

Visit for more information and to apply for the residency.

Proposals due: February 11, 2011

Please submit all questions to Amanda York at

That will be awesome with all the toxic fumes inside the "island". Enjoy!
