The La Pointe Center for the Arts is pleased to offer an Artist in Residence Program on Madeline Island for Fall 2024. The purpose of the program is to provide space and opportunity on Madeline Island for artists to focus on their ideas, create a body of work, research or develop a new project, and to expand their creativity.

The program is open to the following disciplines: painting, drawing, mixed media, writing, and photography. The residency is for a 3-week period beginning October 1 – October 22, 2024. Space at the Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) is available for the period to be used as a studio/work space as well as a place for studio visits with the public, talks or presentations, exhibit or performance space. The space has work tables, bathroom facilities, and sink. Lodging is provided for 3 weeks at Chateau Madeline in a private cottage, located a few miles from downtown La Pointe. The property is located on Lake Superior on a beautiful wooded estate. The artist is responsible for providing all supplies, food, and travel expenses. A vehicle is necessary for transportation to, from, and on the island. The artist will be paid a stipend of $500 per week.

Artists over 21 years of age may apply. There is no application fee. Artists are required to schedule time for interacting with the community during the residency. Examples would be to share the process of work, give a talk, presentation, workshop, perform, read, studio visit, final exhibit of work. Upon acceptance, details of community interaction will be determined. Applications with a strong motivation to share their work with the community will be given preference.
