Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) Artist-in-Residence (AiR) Program
APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 1, 2020
The Purpose of the SURF AiR program is to invite artists to create work inspired by the Sanford Underground Research Facility set in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. SURF’s unique location and history make it an ideal place for creative work. SURF is the deepest underground laboratory in the United States, reaching a mile below the surface. It houses experiments in physics, biology, geology and engineering. This site is also the home of the former Homestake Gold Mine. Artist-in-residence programs are used as a tool to create awareness and encourage interdisciplinary work. This residency is modeled after various programs offered by government, science and industry including the National Park Service, Nokia Bell Labs, CERN, and Fermilab.
