Description of Support or Services

Artists are provided with a private studio, shared living quarters, and meals at no cost, but are responsible for their travel and material expenses. Each session, a distinguished critic/curator is invited to participate as Critic-in-Residence, who leads discussions and makes individual studio visits. The Critic in Residence is on campus for the entire duration of the program. In addition, a former Critic in Residence is invited to be Critic Emeritus for the first week of residency.

The first week of the residency, artists have the opportunity to work with a master printmaker to produce an edition of monotypes. High quality material is provided.

Residents also have conversations with many visiting art critics, gallery owners and prominent artists.

The residency culminates with Open Studio Day, during which hundreds of professionals, art lovers, neighbors and friends view work, ask questions and engage with the artists.
