The Linden Endowment of the Arts has announced the availability of the twenty sims in its Artist in Residence program (LEA10 through LEA29), with applications due by Monday, June 30. Selected artists will receive sims by August 1, and will enjoy a five month period of ownership. Artists who wish to apply may do so here, and are encouraged to communicate with the LEA Committee (Jayjay Zifanwe, LaPiscean Liberty, PatriciaAnne Daviau, Solo Mornington, Werner Kurosawa, Honour McMillan, Oberon Onmura and Quan Lavender) with any questions. (While individual artists are the usual applicants, it's also possible for a curator to apply for a sim, and for that person in turn to organize artists who will participate, such as Mimesis Monday did this past round with artists Giovanna Cerise, SaveMe Oh, Fjara (Jordan Giant), Selavy Oh and Alpha Auer.)
If you're interested in a shorter stay, the LEA also holds five "core sims" for land grants for three or fewer months in duration — application form here. (Some artists might need a space for a short span of time, for example, for a performance work.) And there's also LEA6, which is offered for one month at a time as part of the Full Sim Arts Series — contact Jayjay Zifanwe directly if you're interested. Honour McMillan offers more information on the twenty-nine LEA sims here.
