The Neon Museum National Artist Residency (AIR) is designed to expand the interpretive potential of the collection while providing artists the opportunity to create new work in an unconventional setting. Each residency is accompanied by programming to engage the community and museum visitors, providing exposure to new artists and a fresh perspective on the collection.

Currently, the Neon Museum hosts a National Artist Residency, welcoming artists or a group of artists to create new work engaging patrons of all ages.  The Neon Museum encourages artists or a group of artists working in the fields of visual or performing arts, or new genres, to reside in Las Vegas, Nevada, for eight weeks to develop a project and engage the community with an artist talk, workshops and a studio open house.

The following is provided to artists accepted for participation in the Museum's National AIR Program:

  • Honorarium
  • Accommodation and studio space
  • Access to onsite collection and archives
  • Curatorial support as needed
  • Marketing and publicity
  • Documentation

The application link for the 2019 summer National Artist Residency will be posted here in December 2018 and applications will close February 2019.
