$650 for a 4 week residency
For Visual Artists, Writers, Ceramicists, Composers, and now Weavers. New: Space for artist couples
The Byrdcliffe Artist in Residence program provides visual artists, writers, and composers of exceptional talent with uninterrupted time and creative space within the serene natural setting of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony. Lasting four weeks, the residency offers artists private studio time within a community of peers. Artists are invited to participate in open studios, work-shares, and communal dinners and field trips, or may choose to work in solitude during their entire stay. Residents also have the opportunity to be included in an exhibition at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts the year after their residency. Byrdcliffe’s Artist in Residence program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a simple, communal environment in close proximity to natural beauty.
Program participants pay a subsidized fee of $650 for a four-week residency, which goes toward on-site laundry, bulk foods, and overhead. Fellowships are available to offset the residency fee.
