I hope that your 2016 is happy, healthy and adventurous! This photo shows me working in Izmir, Turkey, on my recent Fulbright Specialist grant project with the Museum of Paper & Book Arts, Ege University, Izmir, Turkey. My experience as an artist in residence in Turkey was great, and I am looking forward to more adventures in 2016.
I wanted to remind artists to send applications soon for the 2016 eco-art projects I curate in Taiwan. This Spring I will again be going back to Taiwan to curate two environmental art projects that invite international artists to come to Taiwan for a 25-day residency and create site-specific environmental art projects. Selected artists receive a stipend of US$2000, airfare, accommodations, meals and volunteer help.
The deadline for applications is coming up fast for the Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project in Yunlin County, Taiwan. All application materials must be submitted by email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2016. Selected artists will come to Cheng Long from April 7 to May 2, 2016, and the theme is “Meet the Future in Cheng Long”. For complete details about what to send to apply see the Blog at http://artproject4wetland.wordpress.com

Look at the Museum’s website at http://www.nmmst.gov.tw Then click on to English and Activities and you will see the 2016 Call for Proposals. The theme for 2016 is “Envisioning the Future , and it is the 130th anniversary for Keelung port. Selected artists for the Keelung project will be in residency in Taiwan from May 12 to June 6, 2016.
