A couple days after the IMA

opened up their Indianapolis Island for rent

, the

Indianapolis Art Center

has announced that it will launch a one to two week residency, funded by a $20,000 NEA grant, in its outdoor sculpture park. The lucky artist will create a site-specific permanent or semi-permanent sculpture in the

Indianapolis Art Center's ARTSPARK

during late summer or fall 2012.

Applications will be accepted from March until May 2012 at the intuitively titled site Artists will receive an honorarium, production budget, studio space and organizational support; the project is expected to cost $45,000 in total, according to the Indianapolis Art Center, and is funded by one of 863 grants totaling over $22 million awarded today by the NEA.

An earlier version of this blog noted that applications are now being accepted for this residency. However, the application process actually begins in March 2012.
