RAGDALE INVITES ARTISTS, ARCHITECTS, AND OTHER CREATIVES TO APPLY FOR A DESIGN-BUILD STUDIO RESIDENCY LEADING TO THE INSTALLATION OF A TEMPORARY, OUTDOOR PERFORMANCE VENUE
Ragdale, the nationally acclaimed artist residency program in Lake Forest, Illinois, invites architects, artists, designers and other creatives to apply for the opportunity to design, build, and exhibit the 2014 Ragdale Ring, a temporary theatre to house summer concerts, performances, and events.
We are seeking inventive, site-responsive, large-scale submissions that explore intersections of architecture, sculpture, landscape, public art, and performance disciplines. Proposals that consider contemporary interpretations of the original Ragdale Ring, designed by architect Howard Van Doren Shaw in 1912 as an outdoor garden theatre, are encouraged (see Shaw's design below).
A jury of architects, artists, and architectural historians will select a single project to realize at full scale on Ragdale's grounds. The recipient will receive a $15,000 production grant to fund the project as well as a design-build residency for a team of up to ten individuals for up to three weeks. The residency will include a large studio, housing, and three meals per day in April and May 2014. The project must be completed by June 1.
The submission deadline is February 21. Please visit ragdale.org for additional details and complete RFP. Questions may be directed [address removed] or [masked].
