Rogers Art Loft

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Rogers Art Loft is a multi-disciplinary artist residency dedicated to inclusivity, originality, and empowerment of artists. The residency offers artists, both national and international, the opportunity to live and work in Las Vegas for 2 to 8 weeks, depending on their needs and art practice. Our mission is to support artists in all steps of their development; with a focus on emerging artists.

During a Rogers Art Loft residency, artists will reside at an Artist Loft 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. 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 will work at Rogers Studio Gallery, a home that has been transformed into an exhibition, studio, and workshop space.

The application process for the Rogers Art Loft occurs annually and is reviewed by an interdisciplinary panel. Applicants can submit their portfolio, written statements, and biographical information online at this link until July 15th, 2021 when the application closes. Find more information at Rogers Art Loft.

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 can request an amount based on their material needs 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), leaving behind one physical or ephemeral work of art for the Rogers Foundation Fine Art Collection, and a culminating event is highly encouraged.    

The Rogers Art Loft is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Situated in a valley, Las Vegas is surrounded by mountains on all sides and situated at the basin floor of the Mojave Desert. The residency is in downtown Las Vegas on Bonneville Avenue near the Arts District, Fremont Experience, Neon Museum, and the Smith Center for Performing Arts.     The Rogers Art Loft is made possible by Rogers Foundation, dedicated to transforming lives through art and education in Southern Nevada.
