The AiR Roadtrip
The AiR Roadtrip
From Oysterville to New Orleans, an AiR roadtrip.
This March Willapa Bay AiR has launched its residency program on 16 acres in coastal southwest Washington State. The Residency has been specifically designed, from the site selection to the architecturally specific building concepts, layouts, and materials, to combine the opportunity for solitude with the opportunity for daily community that fosters creative endeavor.

Spiro Arts is dedicated to supporting the residents in the creation of new works by offering an environment that promotes risk-taking and innovation. Each residency term is approximately six weeks in length, with four to five participants per term. The residencies are fully subsidized: each resident receives shared housing (private room/bath) in a fully furnished condo, ample studio space with 24/7 access, along with a $600.00 (USD) stipend to help defray the cost of food, travel, and materials.

Grand Canyon National Park’s Artist-in-Residence Program seeks artists whose work is engaged in issues that are relevant to the Park Interpretative Themes, while also challenging the visitor to become an active participant in preservation and environmental and cultural advocacy. Artists in all genres and in all disciplines, contemporary, traditional, or folk who have a genuine interest in contributing to the on-going national discussion on these issues will be of special interest to the program.
The Marfa Contemporary Artist in Residence program was instituted in 2012 with the aim of supporting the development of artists of diverse ages, backgrounds, and disciplines. Artists involved in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, performance related media and other fine art media are eligible to apply for a residency. The Artist in Residence program provides an opportunity for artists from the USA to work in a unique natural environment. Marfa is a small town in a sparsely populated area of far West Texas and artists should be prepared to spend a great portion of their time alone. A residency at Marfa Contemporary is perfect for those artists who seek a quiet environment that remains largely unfettered by industrialism.
CentralTrak accepts applications from all national and international artists: visual, literary, performing and curatorial. Artists or writers working in painting, new media, sculpture, architecture, creative writing, sound art, theory and criticism, dance, music, photography, urbanism, social practices and curatorial enterprises are invited to apply. Residents receive a live/work loft studio with all utilities paid, including internet, for the duration of their stay. CentralTrak does not pay for travel, art supplies or other day-to-day needs. CentralTrak has fellowships for travel through a need-base application process, but can never fully fund travel. They encourage applicants to apply for outside funding through other programs to cover their expenses.
The Core Program awards one- and two-year residencies to highly motivated, exceptional visual artists and art scholars who have completed their undergraduate or graduate training but have not yet fully developed a professional career. Established in 1982 within the Glassell School of Art, the teaching wing of Houston's Museum of Fine Arts, the Core Program encourages intensive and innovative studio practice as well as the elaboration of an intellectual framework through which to understand that practice. Residents engage in ongoing dialogue with each other and with leading figures in art and criticism who are brought in as visitors. In 1998, the program added critical studies residencies. The program runs on an academic calendar, from September through May. Toward the end of each year, the artist residents mount a group show in the school's main gallery, and the critical studies residents prepare essays summarizing aspects of their independent research.
