Congratulations to MN composer Eric Carranza for his selection as a Lanesboro Artist in Residence for 2019! Eric will create “Root River Vibrations” a series of musical vignettes inspired by and created with the people, landscape and energy of Lanesboro.
Supported through 2020 by the Jerome Foundation, the Lanesboro Artist Residency Program awards two to three residencies per year to emerging artists with projects that activate the people & places of Lanesboro while instigating positive change. The program’s place-based and community-engaged focus is geared toward emerging artists that are driven to explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work. Artist Residents utilize a dynamic and compelling array of community assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation, while benefiting from dedicated live/work space and ample time to create.
