Bryn Du Artist in Residence Program

Granville, OH, United States

The focus of Bryn Du’s Artist in Residence program is to enhance local awareness and engagement in the arts by introducing new and varied artists to the Granville community throughout the calendar year. Equally important, the Bryn Du Artist in Residence program will provide an inspirational setting for the creation of artistic works by one artist at a time, of any discipline, over an 8 or 12 week time frame. While in residence, the chosen artist will reside in the newly-renovated laundry building, the Artist in Residence cottage, behind the Bryn Du Mansion. Artists may be in any stage of their career to apply and participate in a Bryn Du residency.

Residencies at Bryn Du are open nationwide for artists of all disciplines to apply including but not limited to those in the fields of visual arts, literature, music, theatre, fashion, dance, storytelling and audiovisual studies. Residencies are available in the Winter (Jan-March), Summer (June-August) and Fall (September-November). Upon applying, artists will specify which seasons they may be interested in and if they prefer an 8 or 12 week residency. The application window is open from June 1 through August 31 for residencies in the following calendar year. There is a $15 non-refundable application fee. All artists in residence are expected to provide a minimum of 2 community engagement activities per month which will be agreed upon by Bryn Du and the artist prior to the residency.
