The Rogers Art Loft is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Situated in a valley, Las Vegas is surrounded by mountains on all sides and located on the basin floor of the Mojave Desert. The residency itself is in downtown Las Vegas on Bonneville Avenue near the Arts District, Fremont Experience, Neon Museum, and the Smith Center for Performing Arts. The living space, is uniquely situated in The Lucy complex; home to writers-in-residence from Black Mountain Institute, an independent bookstore: Writer’s Block, and other local Las Vegas writers, artists, and entrepreneurs.
During a Rogers Art Loft residency, artists will reside at The Lucy in the artist loft. Artists will be given a studio and event space at Rogers Studio Gallery. We consider the artist residency to be a place of research, development and creation for artists and an offering of time, space, and support for exploration.
Artists-in-residence will receive the following monetary support: $750 artist stipend per month in residence, a $500 stipend for domestic transportation (international travel will be handled on a case-by-case basis), $61 per diem for each day in residence to cover food, and a $25 per day Lyft credit. Materials stipend are part of the application proposal and artists should request an amount based on their material needs, project proposal, and discipline.
Artists are expected to engage with the city of Las Vegas, community members and partners, and develop their art practice. Their specific obligations include one free public program (artist talk, workshop, or performance) and leaving behind one physical or ephemeral work of art for the Rogers Foundation Fine Art Collection.
