The Art and Natural Resources Residency (ANRR) is a short-term residency program to engage a local artist and allow them to embed with the JCPRD Natural Resource team to learn, respond artistically, and amplify this important work. The 2024 Art and Natural Resources Residency (ANRR) will focus on the role of water in Johnson County and the importance of clean water and quality watersheds as part of our regional ecosystem’s resilience. The art will respond to this theme and be placed somewhere along the Mill Creek Steamway within JCPRD.
This public art opportunity is open to professional artists residing in the Kansas City region within one of the following nine counties: Cass, Clay, Douglas, Jackson, Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami, Platte, Wyandotte. We also invite artists who work in other professional disciplines to consider applying, such as architects, environmentalists, ecologists, etc.
The artist stipend for this residency is $10,000, which is provided in partnership with the Johnson County Stormwater Management Program. This stipend, payable to the artist, includes travel costs, research, design, fabrication and materials, installation and community engagement activity.
