High up in the mountains above Reno the tiny Comstock mining town of Silver City is developing an Artist in Residence program. A geodesic series of connected wooden domes built by the acclaimed Nevadan artist Jim McCormick in the 1970’s, has been re purposed for an artist’s residence and studio space.

“Silver City, Nevada is a small community on the Comstock that was recently declared an “Arts and Culture Resources Production Center” due to the high output of visual art, music, publications, and historic preservation resources by residents over the last 50 years. The recently developed Resident Artist Program provides an opportunity for those creating in the performing, visual, media, design, or literary arts to reside in Silver City in housing provided for visiting artists for periods of up to 4 months, in exchange for offering free public performances, exhibitions, workshops, etc. in the community. The program is privately funded and organized by Theo McCormick and Quest Lakes.”
