The Neon Museum announces a call for entries for its 2020 National Artist Residency. Now in its fifth year, the Neon Museum National Residency offers a U.S.-based contemporary artist the opportunity to explore and interpret The Neon Museum’s historic collection within a broader cultural context nationwide. During the winning candidate’s tenure in Las Vegas, the local community will have multiple opportunities to engage with the artist and their work. This program/project is supported, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency and the state of Nevada.


“Hosting this annual program enables us to introduce the community to a diverse array of artists who draw inspiration from The Neon Museum’s collection,” said Rob McCoy, president and chief executive officer, The Neon Museum. “It’s gratifying to be able to provide a platform for new creative output and cultural dialogue.”


The successful entrant will be selected based on demonstrated artistic excellence, quality and clarity of the submission, quality and benefit of the proposed public program and demonstrated ability to complete the project within the allotted schedule. Upon completion of the residency, the museum requests the artist contribute a mutually agreed-upon artwork to the museum’s collection.

The residency spans eight weeks from June 15 through Aug. 7, 2020. For the successful candidate, the Neon Museum will provide:

  • $3,000 stipend plus a modest budget for materials, if required.
  • $800 travel allowance.
  • Living accommodations for eight weeks in downtown Las Vegas.
  • A 1,000-square-foot studio space inside the museum’s 10,000-square-foot Ne10 Studio; this space is climate-controlled (essential during Las Vegas summers) and has a ceiling height of 19 feet.
  • Access to the museum’s sign collection and archives, marketing and publicity support, photographic documentation and staffing to assisting with administering the public portion of the program.
