The city’s Department of Cultural Affairs is calling out for potential “residencies” at senior centers. Ok, don’t get crazy with enthusiasm. It’s not a free place to live, but it’s a free workspace, free access to Material for the Arts warehouse, a $1,500 stipend and proximity to an inspiring cache of elderly illnesses.
Yes, that’s terrible, but let’s not pretend that a front row seat to inescapable human suffering won’t be a draw for certain types.
From January to July, artists will be asked to “connect positively” and “directly” with the seniors for 40-60 hours. Actually, this is not a bad idea. Let’s mix it up, however. Who thinks Nate Hill should apply? Garbage taxidermy > painting.
Apply before Sep 30. Pardon the Photoshop caricature.
