Upcoming Deadlines for All Artists on Res Artis and Transartists

Hi everyone---sorry I got a bit snarky yesterday because of a disgruntled person who did not win the contest. Anyway, if you haven't checked out the winning artists yet, go here to see who they are:

And just to let you know, there are many upcoming residency deadlines for all disciplines on RES ARTIS  and TRANSARTISTS. Even in this economic world-wide slump, there are new residencies popping up all over, which cheers me up immensely!

Have a great weekend and don't forget to take a look at the Karol Slowik and Lily Morris who are our contest winners this time around.

A Word to the Wise! Lest Ye Experience the Wrath of Mirabee!

I am sorry to have to say this—but someone just wrote one of my judges today, insulting the art of one of the winners, and telling her that she made a poor choice. I am assuming that no one else is foolish and unprofessional enough to do this but if you are thinking of it, DO NOT WRITE MY JUDGES personal emails about their choices. That is really out of line! Let's just take a moment to celebrate the fine art that was submitted by ALL and not be bitter and self-righteous.

Sorry to have to write that but you never know who is out there, lurking in the shadows....

Once again, congrats to Karol Slowik and Lily Morris! Click here to read about the winners and see their beautiful, timely, very humanistic work.
Mirabee, on patrol for troublemakers....

Art Contest 2012: The Winners Have Been Announced!

Well, after much deliberation, the results are finally in for the art contest. First, before I tell you who the judges picked, I want to say that the art submitted was fantastic and that it was a hard decision to make for the judges: Mary Sherman, Director of TransCultural Exchange and Wendy Watson, Curator at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum. So thanks to not only them for helping out with this contest but thanks to all of you who entered! Okay....on to the winners: KAROL SLOWIK for first place and LILY MORRIS for on....

First, a big congratulations to Karol Slowik for winning first place! Karol is from Poland but now lives in New York and you will hear more about Karol's work in the future when we do a special interview later this spring. Karol won a $500 prize and will soon be featured on this blog until the next contest. Here is some of Karol's work (scroll down to see Lily's work too).

Lily Morris, from Massachusetts, won second place. She received a $100 prize. Below are some of her paintings. She is only three years out of college and I think she has quite a bright future before her.

Thanks again everyone for entering and I hope some of you try again for the next contest down the road. Cheers! Mira

Where Would You Be Without Your Library? Library Fellowships and More!

 Greetings dear readers,

Today I'd like to take a moment to mention the wonder of libraries. For me, growing up in an unstable home during a turbulent time in America, the library was my sacred sanctuary. I discovered vast and enchanting worlds inside the pages of those books and I will forever be grateful to all those librarians who helped lead me down the path to the great world of literature.

You might not know this but all over the U. S. (and other countries as well) there are libraries that offer long and short term fellowships so that you, dear writer, artist, scholar, whatever you are, can do in-depth research. Many people who aren't affiliated with an academic institution are intimidated by some of these programs because they are housed in scary places like Harvard University or Yale. But fear not! If you have enough experience under your belt in the form of publications or musical compositions or whatever it is you do, you should feel more than welcome to apply as an "independent scholar" (unless, of course, the application states that you must have a PhD and you don't, so please read the application guidelines carefully!)

Below are just a couple that are offered among dozens and dozens throughout the U.S. Many of them even offer travel money and have extensive art collections. One to check out for the future (the deadline is passed at the moment) is the the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, which annually awards over 50 fellowships to support research in all areas of the humanities, including literature, photography, film, art, the performing arts, music, and cultural history. 

And to find more, just do a simple google search for "library fellowships 2013" and you are on your way. But first, before you scroll down to read about these opportunities, take a minute to watch this delightful video about one of the local libraries in my neck of the woods. It will remind you why you love libraries and why you need to keep supporting them any way you can. Enjoy!

Okay, here are a couple library fellowships for you....Happy Spring!

(LGBT) LGBT Visiting Scholars Program: Martin Duberman Visiting Scholars
Each year, The New York Public Library provides stipends for up to three Martin Duberman Visiting Scholars. The stipends support travel to New York City and related expenses to do research in the Library’s premier LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) history collections. The travel grants awarded range from $1,000 to $8,500. The program is limited to emerging scholars—those without permanent academic appointments—or those who are unaffiliated with an academic institution. Recipients must supply a written summary of their findings upon completion of their work. Interested applicants should send a 3–5 page research proposal specifying the relevant collections at the Library for their project, a draft budget and itinerary for their planned trip, a CV, and an appropriate letter of recommendation. Applications should be sent to:  
Deadline is May 15th. Notice of awards will be sent beginning June 10th. If you have any questions about the program or the Library’s collections, please contact Jason Baumann, [email protected]. 

(CHILDREN'S BOOK WRITERS) Boston Public Library Children's Writer-in-Residence ProgramThe Associates of the Boston Public Library is now accepting applications for the 2012-2013 Children's Writer-in-Residence Program.

The Children's Writer-in-Residence program is intended to:
  • Provide an emerging children's writer with the financial support and office space needed to complete one literary work
  • Promote the awareness of young readers, families and teachers of the Boston Public Library and its resources, by establishing a living link between the Library and the community
  • Draw attention to the importance of writers and writing in our culture, as well as the many free educational opportunities offered by the Boston Public Library
Applications are due May 15, 2012. Projects eligible for this program are fiction, non-fiction, a script, or poetry, intended for children or young adults. Illustrations may be combined with any of these formats, but are not required. The selected applicant will receive a $20,000 stipend and office space at the BPL's Central Library in Copley Square. The applicant must work a minimum of 20 hours per week at the BPL during the nine-month residency (September 4, 2012 through May 31, 2013.) To be eligible, the applicant must be a US citizen and cannot have published more than three books to-date. For further details or to apply, please download and submit the program guidelines and application form (PDF). more info here:
(ALL) Houghton Library Fellowships at Harvard University—Houghton Library is the principal rare book and manuscript library of Harvard College. The Library's holdings are particularly strong in the following areas: European, English, American, and South American literature, including the country's pre-eminent collection of American literary manuscripts; philosophy; religion; history of science; music; printing and graphic arts; dance; and theatre.  Fellows will also have access to collections in Widener Library as well as to other libraries at the University.  Preference is given to scholars whose research is closely based on materials in Houghton collections, especially when those materials are unique; fellowships are normally not granted to scholars who live within commuting distance of the library.  Each fellow is expected to be in residence at Houghton for at least four weeks during the period from July 2013 through June 2014 (these do not have to be consecutive weeks), and each fellow is expected to produce a written summary of your experience working with the collection. The stipend for each fellowship is $3,000. Other than the Pantzer Fellowship, applicants need not apply for specific fellowships, as the Selection Committee would determine which fellowship is best suited to your research.

(I'm not sure when the deadline is so please check the website for more info).

Mira's List FAQs on Grants, Fellowships and Residencies

Hey Everyone, I finally posted the links to my FAQs so you can learn a little about my take on grants, fellowships, residencies and Fulbright awards. Go here for the inside scoop:


A Special Note to Residency, Grant and Fellowship Programs

Greetings all....just a note today to all you residencies and grant foundations and other institutions who ask me to post about your programs on Mira's List. I appreciate your keeping me updated on deadlines and will continue to do what I can to spread the word about what you do. I have been doing this for four years now and hope I can keep doing it for as long as I can.

In return, please consider making a small donation once and a while to keep this blog going, or consider advertising on my site. It would help immensely. I am unable to work full time due to a disability and do this work for free. It would be great if some of the organizations I post about would donate something sometime (a couple of you have recently so thank you!). Usually it is the artists who donate and most of them are pretty broke. So please consider helping out. Even a small donation helps pay the bills. Thanks! But don't worry, I will still continue to post about your programs no matter what!
p.s. if you are interested in donating to Mira's List, you can find my donation button on the right hand side bar. Thanks!

New Artist Residency in the Phillippines

Good morning everyone. Just so you know, the 2012 Art Contest is officially closed. Winners will be announced on my website later this month. 

Here is a new residency—I don't know anything about it but it is in a region where there are few if any residencies so although you must pay a small amount to stay there, it could be a very interesting experience:

(ARTISTS) the Ang Bahay ng Sining Artist Residency in the PhillippinesAng Bahay ng Sining or The House of Art is an artist-in-residence program directed to international or local artists which aims to create a cultural exchange between artists and the community. It is an art house for artists who would like to create an art project in collaboration with the local people. Great opportunities lie within this dwelling which implores the result of a mutual trade of ideas, inspiration and experience between diverse cultures. It also serves as a meeting place designed to bring people from different ethnic traditions, backgrounds and walks of life closer to each other which opens a gateway to creating and sharing beautiful moments full of passion in creativity and in life.

Project Objective: 
The main objective of Ang Bahay ng Sining is to increase community awareness pertaining to the different mediums in the field of visual arts, music and other artistic crafts which aims to establish Quezon City as the premier arts, culture, music and design hub in Metro Manila.

Disciplines: Drawing/Painting, Film, Media Art, Multi Media, New Media, Performance Art, Photography, Sculpture

Language: English

Location: Ang Bahay ng Sining is located within a commercial road in the center of the vibrant city of Quezon City.

A final exhibition of works will be presented at the end of the residency program wherein the artists would be showcasing their public artworks to the general public at the Bario Obrero Street Art Festival. Artists may also have the opportunity to facilitate outreach programs such as talks, workshops and exhibitions, intended to promote interaction and professional development within the community.

Duration: The artist-in-residence program will invite  artists to stay from 1-3 months.

Paid by artist: 
The artist would have to pay for their own travel expenses, health insurance, materials, food and personal needs. The residency’s accommodation costs $250 a month which covers wi-fi internet, technical and administrative support and utility expenses. We would, however, be more than happy to help the participants in providing any official letter or support letters if required. Click this link to get information on how to pay.

Paid by host: 
Ang Bahay ng Sining would be offering technical and administrative help, assistance in projects involving wood and metal and electrical; we offer low-prices for photographic prints, canvasses, painting materials and in framing artworks; and promotion of the artist’s and their projects. We will also be giving a free service to and from the airport; free buffet meals every weekend.

Application Guidelines and Criteria:
Artists must be active in the field of contemporary art with an interest in exploration and production of collaborative work during the residency period.

The Bahay ng Sining is geared towards emerging artists to mid-career and established artists who wish to develop their projects or create new ones within the urban halls of Quezon City. It is expected that the artists will be active in engaging with the dynamic environment of the city and use the opportunity to help inspire and contribute to the growth of the local Art scene.

The Mira's List 2012 Art Contest is Now Closed: Winners Announced in Late April

Good morning readers,

The Mira’s List 2012 Art Contest is officially closed now. Thank you all for participating! I will post the names of the grand prize winner and second place winner by the end of April, but hopefully sooner. And stay tuned for an interview with the yet-to-be-determined winner! More contests on the way later this year...

Welcome to Mira's List

This blog provides information on upcoming grants, fellowships and residencies for artists, writers, composers, and media artists. It is for serious professionals only, from emerging to mid-career to established. I also publish information for graduate students from time to time. However, I do not publish information on exhibition or publishing opportunities, nor do I advertise artist retreats and workshops that charge money. At least that is my current policy. For more info on where to exhibit or publish, please see my links section which I try to periodically update. I sift through hundreds of search engines and websites to find opportunities for YOU dear artist. In return, I ask you to pass the information along to those who need it. Also, since this is a free blog, I don't always have the time to weed carefully through everything. If you find a grant or website or residency that is not up-to-date, is dodgy in some way, or is no longer in existence, please let me know! Also, if you stay somewhere at one of the residencies I suggest and have a good experience, I want that feedback too. Please check my FAQs at the top right side bar if you have questions before starting your search. Best wishes and happy hunting!
