Contemporary Arts International

Emerging Program member

The Contemporary Arts International Artist in Residency program was designed to encourage and assist artists to realize new projects and ideas. We are open to working 3D and multidisciplinary artists who want to experience living and working in a special New England art environment. We anticipate artists inspired by this beautiful environment, intensely creating their new artwork and conducting intellectual dialogue with other fellow artists. Artist residencies typically last between two and seven months.
