About the Studios at MASS MoCA: The Studios is MASS MoCA’s artist and writers residency program situated within the museum’s factory campus and surrounded by the beautiful Berkshire Mountains. Operated by MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists department, the residency runs year-round and hosts up to 10 artists at a time. Artists of any nationality can apply for stays of 2-8 weeks.
For decades now, artists have been drawn to the small post-industrial city of North Adams, tucked into the far northwest corner of Massachusetts. North Adams continues to beckon creatives with its ready access to nature, affordable cost of living and, of course, MASS MoCA’s spectacular (and enormous) galleries and amazing performing arts spaces for immersing oneself in astounding and risk-taking contemporary art, not to mention the rich cultural landscape of the surrounding Berkshires and a general proximity to New York City and Boston.
