Program Description

The selected Artists-in-Residence will live and work on-site at the M.T. Liggett Art Environment for 4-6 weeks. They will be provided with a fully-furnished one-bedroom apartment located at the Visitors Center, which includes kitchen and laundry facilities. Artists will have access to the shared studio space downstairs, onsite tools and materials, and outdoor acreage to pursue their work and research. See our Facilities Guide for details. Artists will receive $1000 maximum travel support and a weekly artist stipend during their time in-residence. Residency funding is dependent on length of residency, grantmaking, and may fluctuate from year to year; we will offer details upon selection of resident artists. During your first week on-site, our team will work with you to schedule your community exchange hours. Artists-in-Residence will be asked to contribute 6-10 hours per week to the stewardship of arts in our community, in a way that best suits their practice and skills.
