Website | Application

The Howard Hughes Corporation®, in collaboration with the Howard County Arts Council, is now accepting applications for its second annual 2019 Merriweather District Artist-in-Residence (MD AIR) program in Downtown Columbia, MD.  Up to three artists will be selected from entries submitted nationwide, and provided with a $10,000 stipend, studio space and housing to spend up to six weeks in residence, from May 13-June 24, 2019. 

Now in its second year of an annual program, the 2019 MD AIR program is designed to nurture the creative inspiration of artists as they are invited to experience Downtown Columbia as an evolving urban center and burgeoning creative hub. The iconic Merriweather Post Pavilion is currently undergoing a $50 million renovation and expansion, adjacent to the Chrysalis amphitheater which was dedicated in 2017.
