The City of Santa Monica is accepting applications for a Resident Artist (Resident) to work with our Resource Recovery and Recycling (RRR) Division. Resident will learn about Division activities, priorities, schedule and capacity, and through staff and public engagement, illuminating the work of RRR. The Resident might additionally delve into the history and general operations of the City Yards site, potentially expanding their project to include neighboring businesses and residents, the histories and displacements of previous dwellers and users of the site, previous artwork at the site, or other topics.
The residency will begin at contract signing, estimated in early 2023, and include regular communications with staff and a major checkpoint in June 2023 to assess accomplishments and adjust the workplan as necessary. The Resident Artist’s workplan will include a project evaluation that summarizes the activities of the residency, presents qualitative data from public and staff responses, and proposes a structure and considerations for similar future residencies that embed artists with City divisions. The residency will conclude in spring 2024.
