Manship Artists Residency

Gloucester, MA, United States

Manship Artists Residency is dedicated to the preservation of an environmentally and historically significant site that has been given new life as an international, interdisciplinary artists residency for the benefit of the community and visitors to Cape Ann.

 

Manship Artists values those who challenge us to think differently and aims to create an environment where creativity and questions are encouraged and where all are welcome.

 

Manship is making special efforts towards racial and social equity by learning what traditionally underrepresented and underfunded artists need, and by developing effective solutions to serve them.

Additional Accessibility Information

Manship Artists Residency is at an historic site that will be developed overtime according to ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  Built in 1944-45 on the site of a former quarry, the building and grounds pose some accessibility challenges.  The public areas on the first floor of the residence and the barn studio are accessible, and much of the immediate landscape surrounding the residence and the barn studio can be traversed on foot or with a wheelchair.
