The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program brings artists from around the world to Corning. The artists spend a month at The Studio, exploring new directions in glass art, or expanding on their current bodies of work, while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum.
One month residency
Residencies will be held in March, April, May, October, and November. One or two individuals will be selected for each month.
Transportation, as well as room and board, will be arranged for those invited to participate in these month-long programs. All basic supplies will be provided, and the facility will be made available whenever classes are not in session. Residents will have access to the Rakow Research Library and the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass. Residents are expected to make their own work during a residency.
If you are interested in being considered, please submit your application including 10 digital images of your work, two letters of recommendation, a written proposal (including detailed information on your residency plans; necessary supplies, equipment, and assistants), the best months for you to participate, and a resumé.
Joint residency with Kohler Arts Center
In support of artists interested in working in a variety of mediums including glass, The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass is partnering with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center for a joint Artist-in-Residence program. Artists will spend one month at The Studio in Corning and two to six months in Kohler Co.'s foundry (casting iron or brass) or pottery (slip casting clay) in Sheboygan, WI.
The Corning/Kohler residency program is open to emerging and established artists working in any discipline. Training in ceramics or metal sculpture is not required, but artists must have experience working with glass, and be capable of quickly mastering the industrial technologies. Successful proposals will incorporate a unified project using the resources available at both institutions. Travel, accommodations, supplies, equipment, technical assistance, and stipend are provided.
At the end of the residency, each artist gives a presentation about his or her work.
