Hi Folks,

One clarification. There is no "entrance fee" just a required annual membership donation, just like rhizome has for posting here, which provides a variety of benefits, including being able to upload materials for opportunities such as being considered for this and other shows.

Thanks for spreading the word Lee! I'm so excited about 1800Frames|Take3, curated by Mica Scalin and Lee Wells!

Cheers,

Ben Goldman
cWOW Executive Director

description | STUDIO + TRAINING + EXHIBITION
The new media artist in residence will have use of a private studio in Newark overlooking Lincoln Park for 17 weeks from February to June, 2007. The artist will also receive a $1,200 stipend and an equipment/materials budget. In addition, five high-school students will apprentice under the artist’s supervision in weekly one-hour training sessions to help realize a major work of new media art. The final
artwork will be presented in a high-profile exhibition either at cWOW or another prestigious venue.

programming such as this. Your donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Artist registry materials, including images, videos, and more, can now be uploaded to our website after joining, and will
soon be available for public viewing. See other member benefits and join online at www.cwow.org.
