The Dome House: Al and Mickey Quinlan Artist Residency / Deadline: March 1

The Dome House offers the Al and Mickey Quinlan Artist Residency. Located in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, this residency is open to one artist residing in the Midwest working in the fine art mediums of drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and other mediums. The residency aims to provide the space and support to create work in an inspiring and unique location, in addition to providing opportunities for public access to an artist at work through public programming and educational content for the community. The Al & Mickey Quinlan Residency is an 8-week fall program created and led in partnership with the Miller Art Museum.  

Artist in residence (AIR) will receive a $500 stipend to support creative endeavors while in residence.

AIR will be expected to actively engage the public through educational outreach for a minimum of 5 hours per week.

AIR from outside of the Door County area will have living quarters in a semi-private loft space at the Dome House, which also houses the adjacent studio/work space. The space is fully furnished. Basic cooking equipment will be provided; AIR will be responsible for groceries and preparation of meals. AIR is expected to cover personal living expenses, additional materials and supplies above those furnished and any other expenses relating to the cost of producing work incurred while in the program. Because of the unique nature of its design, the Dome House is prone to temperature fluctuations; artists should be prepared for this, especially cooler temperatures during early fall, and plan accordingly.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS: The Residency is sensitive to the program’s environmental impact on the living and working space in the Dome House and the environs in which it is located. Artists will be expected to work with non-toxic materials only, and adhere to safe disposal protocols.
