Call for Artist-in-Residence Submissions

We serve as the center of community life by providing the space and programming where citizens can learn, know, gather and grow. Our Artist-in-Residence program celebrates the work of local artists and welcomes community members of all ages to experience the arts through engaging opportunities.

Funded by the Friends of the Appleton Public Library, residencies last for 3 months.* As a part of their residency, artists will:

  • Exhibit their work at the library
  • Offer a demonstration of their work at the library
  • Lead two hands-on workshops open to the public and tailored to certain age groups as needed.

If you have a new idea that you want to try, let us know. We enjoy hearing new ideas. Please email Elizabeth Eisen ( or Kristi Helmkamp ( questions about the Artist-in-Residence program or the application process. The current deadline to apply was August 15, 2017. Please check back around the middle 2018 for 2019 residencies.
