Corning Museum of Glass

Corning Museum of Glass

The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program offers residencies for artists and designers to explore new directions in glass art.

The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program brings artists from around the world to Corning, N.Y. 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. At the end of the residency, each artist gives a presentation about their work during a free public event in The Studio Lecture Room.

Transportation, as well as room and board, will be arranged for those invited to participate in the month-long Artist-in-Residence program. 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.

The Corning Museum of Glass offers different types of residencies, among which a Specialy Residency and a Black, Indigenious and People of Color Residency. Read more about the various programs on their website.
