Residency Call

MARR’s mission is to challenge the perception of waste culture by providing a unique platform for artists at the intersection of art, community, and waste systems. The Moab area is highly impacted by the tourism industry and, as a result, waste management. By facilitating artists’ direct engagement with the waste stream, MARR encourages resident artists to consider their studio practice through the lens of sustainability and to thoughtfully re-assess their processes of material sourcing and waste disposal.

Through a 4-week residency, the program offers artists studio space, project and community facilitation, a stipend, access to materials at local waste disposal sites, and the time and space to focus solely on their art. As a component of each residency, artists spend time providing opportunities for learning, dialog and enrichment within the community.

Artist Residency Program

Artists selected for this program are in all stages of their careers and work in all media including drawing, painting, installation, new media, photography, film, video, fiction and nonfiction writing, interdisciplinary, and social practice.
