May 18, 2021 (Charlotte, NC) Blumenthal Performing Arts and Lighthouse Immersive have announced an artist-in-residence program at Immersive Van Gogh, the highly anticipated exhibition bringing Vincent van Gogh’s masterpieces to life through 500,000+ cubic feet of projections in Camp North End’s historic Ford Building. The paid residency is designed for local artists to showcase their work in a unique space with the inspirational backdrop of Vincent van Gogh.
 
Interested artists are invited to learn more and apply here by June 4, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. EST. The artists will be selected on June 10, 2021.
 
“We firmly believe that Charlotte is ready to be a big city that has huge, international shows come here, and we would also like to recognize that we would be remiss not to highlight and uplift the immense local talent that exists in our beautiful, creative city,” said Bree Stallings, Blumenthal’s Director of Artistic Experiences. “Selected artists-in-residence will be compensated for their time and given prime access to interact with and sell their goods to thousands of Immersive Van Gogh ticket holders a day.”
 
If selected, artists are encouraged to create and cultivate work during their residency around the theme of Vincent van Gogh and be prepared to work 40 hours each week.
