Pier 9 Artist in Residence program at Autodesk

WHO:

We are looking for passionate individuals with compelling project ideas who are excited to share their skills with the Pier 9 community.

Active authors and contributors to our Instructables community are given priority for this residency. If you are not currently an Instructables member, we strongly suggest that you join. Create a user name and post some projects.

Beyond Instructables, strong candidates have excellent documentation, writing, and photography skills, and extensive experience in making things within their area(s) of interest. At Pier 9, we support an open, self-guided, and hands-on work environment, so self-motivated and independent workers will thrive in this program.

Prior experience or deep understanding of the tools we have at Pier 9 is highly valued. However, depending on which tools you want to use, this may not always be necessary.

WHAT:

Projects can be anything from new recipe ideas, playful gadgets/products, or sculptures, to unique technologies and even fine art and design. Make sure that your project ideas are unique and allow you to take full advantage of the tools available at the Pier 9 workshop.

We currently have limited space at Pier 9 and highly recommend that all projects be within human scale. If your projects require additional space, we encourage you to seek other locations away from Pier 9.

Instructables supports each resident with a monthly $2,000 stipend and an additional project materials allowance, which varies depending on the project.

We have a world-class workshop at our at Pier 9 offices in San Francisco, California, complete with an electronics lab, craft room, test kitchen, wood/metal workshops, 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC machines. Artists receive training on our tools and are required to be hands-on in the production of their work from start to finish. We have specialists available to help troubleshoot along the way and can help contract out components of your project when necessary.

Yountville Underpass Mural Project

WHO:

At this time we are asking for artists who are interested in this project to submit examples of their work with these goals in mind, and with the flexibility to be creative with us for the final design.

WHAT:

The Yountville Arts Commission’s intent is to select an artist to create a fine art mural that will meet or exceed the expectations of the Yountville brand – a bucolic town renowned for its world-class restaurants and award wining chefs, the unofficial Culinary Capital of the Napa Valley known for its small town charm, rich history and a fantastic quality of life. The mural must be sophisticated and an appropriate addition to the Yountville image.

We have engaged our residents and neighbors in a discussion regarding the mural’s theme. We will continue to invest in public outreach and input as we receive our artist submissions. Our general guidelines for a theme will be created around the idea of celebrating all things Yountville from what inspired settlers to choose this location, to the unique industry of wine and vineyards, and our culinary fame.

WHEN:

Deadline to Submit October 1, 2015
