Duration of residency

The Anderson Center offers a month-long residency in June, biannually for the deaf artist with rare exceptions made for two-week stays. Residencies begin on the 1st of each month and end on the last day of each month. If a residency is for two weeks, it will begin on the 1st or 16th of each month, and end on the 15th or last day of the month.

Accommodation

Each resident is provided a private room, board, and workspace for the length of the residency period in the historic Tower View residence
Dinners are prepared and presented by the Anderson Center chef Monday through Friday. The chef will also shop for groceries for the artist residents. Residents are responsible for preparing their own breakfasts and lunches, and meals over the weekends.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance

The Residency Program is open to emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists, writers, composers, choreographers, interdisciplinary artists, musicians, performance artists, scholars, and translators. Our program is interdisciplinary and we welcome applications from a wide range of creative and intellectual genres, including those that don’t fit neatly into the above list.

Visual artists are provided a 15′ x 26′ studio and are responsible for supplying their own materials. Other workspaces on-site include a cone 10 gas kiln and electric kilns, an open-air metalsmith facility, and a print studio (with a Vandercook 219 letterpress and a Charles Brand-like etching press).

Practice space is also available for dancers and choreographers
