Location:

Newport, RI, USA


Deadline:

more information »

The Newport artist residency, AIR/Newport is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established visual artists and designers by giving them the time, space and solitude needed to create, apart from the daily demands of production and deadline.

Our hope is that some aspect of Newport County’s architecture, flora, history, and/or ocean front geography will result in resident artists further developing their current practice or the creation of new work.

From its founding in 1912, the Newport Art Museum has valued art and artists as essential components of a vibrant, healthy and informed community and therefore we consider a community engagement activity, to be determined by the resident artists, a priority. We are committed to cultivating a culture of inclusion and believe the collective sum of our individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, identities, and histories help ensure that our Museum is, and will continue to be, a welcoming place for all.

While in residence, all artists / designers will reside in a studio apartment located on the Museum’s 3-acre campus and have access to a dedicated ‘clean’ studio space within the Museum’s school building, as well as the Museum’s galleries, grounds, permanent collection (by appointment) and behind-the-scene tours of other Newport cultural organizations. Museum staff will make introductions to nearby artists, gallerists, collectors, Universities and art museums. There will be a welcome reception for the artist at the beginning of the residency and an open studio day for the general public at the end of the residency.

Stipends / other support:
• $500 Honorarium
• $200 Travel Stipend
• $250 Meals/food shopping
• $500 Materials/Supplies/Equipment (equipment will remain with the Museum)
