2023 Terradise Environmental Arts Residency
Terradise Nature Center is excited to expand our arts programming in the next five years by mobilizing our beautiful six-acre nature preserve as location and muse for local art-making. We have already begun to launch arts programming under our Cultural Heritage Programming suite, which includes Terradise’s efforts to preserve and present the photography, filmmaking, and poetry of Terradise founders Trella & Ray Romine, alongside OAC ArtSTART-funded Terradise Ambient: Environmental Soundscapes Along the Olentangy soundscape project, and an annual nature photography contest leading to an annual Terradise calendar.
Our new 2023 Terradise Environmental Arts Residency has been made possible through the once-in-a-lifetime support of a Community Projects Grant from the Ohio Arts Council’s Arts Resiliency Initiative: designed to kickstart COVID-19 recovery in Ohio communities through direct funds to artists. Thanks to OAC’s support, we will be able to provide month-long grants to at least ten artists from Marion & Morrow County.
Two artists will be “artists-in-residence” each month – one artist from Marion County and one from Morrow County. We interpret “from” loosely – to mean anyone living in, working in, or ancestrally from either county.
