Sculpture Space Inc. (NY), Call for Applicants: Artist Residency 2019
Deadline: January 15th, 2018
From their call: Sculpture Space, located in Utica, New York invites artists whose focus is sculpture to apply for a two-month residency between February and November 2019.
We offer a 5,500 square foot shared studio with specialized equipment in addition to five private studios. The Studio Manager provides ongoing assistance and technical expertise; the Operations Manager and Executive Director are available to assist with any other special requirements. Basic understanding and communication skills in English are necessary. Three to five artists are in residence each month; artists are expected to stay for a full two months. For absences longer than four contiguous days, stipend will be prorated. Housing is provided a block away in a newly renovated residence with private bedrooms, washer/dryer, TV, internet, shared living space and kitchen. Artists are responsible for materials, specialized tools and food. Bicycles are provided; transport for materials purchase and other needs is also available.
The studio and house are located in the eclectic, historically underserved, diverse and upcoming West Utica neighborhood — close to downtown, and situated in Central New York’s scenic Mohawk Valley. Because of Sculpture Space’s long history and presence in Utica, the community is supportive and receptive to site-specific work; in particular, we are interested in projects that realize and expand examples of creative place-making to our neighborhood and the community.
Accepted artists are selected by a Review Committee and guest juror John Monti, Graduate Professor of Fine Arts at Pratt Institute. Artists are notified late February/early March. Primary criteria for selection are based on the quality, originality and potential of their work and proposed project. Dependent on funding, financial aid may be made available.
