Lost and Found Lab Residency

Cos Cob, CT, United States

The Lab’s mission is to provide a retreat-like work and living space to visual artists, scholars, curators, writers, composers, arts professionals and interdisciplinary thinkers drawn to exploring the relationship between visual art and the written word.  The Lab is named in honor of New Yorker cartoonist and New York Times columnist, James Stevenson and celebrates Stevenson’s working methodology as both a writer and visual artist.

Located in Cos Cob, CT, the Lab offers 3-4 week residences, and includes a $1000 stipend and access to an electric vehicle for limited residency use. The Lab is situated on a one-acre wooded property with expansive tree top vistas, and includes fire pit conversation areas and an open air patio available for use by the resident. Clerestories fill the facility with natural light, creating a silent and meditative treehouse-like feel on the upper level of the building.

Lost and Found Lab is a contemporary building inspired by Passivehaus design with radiant heat flooring throughout. Ground floor includes studio and living space, upper level includes a reading library, art gallery and full eat-in kitchen.

The residency works in partnership with local cultural institutions including the Beinecke Library in New Haven, providing residents with access to archival collections held at the library for those interested in utilizing such material as a source of inspiration.
