Old Furnace Artist Residency • Richmond, Virginia, USA • https://oldfurnace.tumblr.com/
The Old Furnace Artist Residency is an ongoing social sculpture initiated in 2013 by Jon Henry from his guest room.
“O.F.A.R. seeks to expose/engage artists to/with (rural) communities. It focuses on furthering the entanglements between art and politics.... Special attention is given to practices which are focused on social justice + social engagement. Emerging artists are especially encouraged to apply. There are no costs for participating artists but they will need to provide their own transit to the residency; Participating artists are asked to donate one piece of art to the residency in exchange for the room, board, and food. This art collection will be used for future exhibitions and OFAR projects/publications.”
