The management of the Orange County Great Park is summoning artists in all genres to apply for grants that will pay four winners $7,500 stipends to occupy studios that used to house fighter squadrons.
The six-month residencies begin in July. The application deadline is Friday for “adult artists from around the world, who work in any discipline,” including, but not limited to, visual arts, performing arts, interdisciplinary arts and literature.
The grant-makers aren’t looking for specific project proposals but for evidence of overall artistic quality and an ability to interact with the public, since the point is for the artists to “routinely” engage with park visitors.
