The deadline for Bernheim’s 2022 Artist Residency Program was December 15, 2021, and we are thrilled with the overall number, diversity of media, and geographic range of this year’s pool of applicants. We received a total of 145 submissions from 31 states and 16 countries including Brazil, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Ireland Mozambique, Peru and Tunisia!
Additionally, there were 21 regional artist applicants from Kentucky and Southern Indiana and 45 artists who applied to Bernheim’s inaugural Environmental Artist in Residence. Bernheim’s Arts in Nature Curator, Jenny Zeller is currently pouring through submissions and excited to see such thought provoking residency proposals.
Applications are distilled through a two-tiered, online review process into a shortlist, which is first brought to Bernheim staff and then to an esteemed panel of regional curators, alumni artists, and art leaders where final selections are made. Applicants will be notified of their application status in mid-February 2022 or as soon as possible, depending on the availability of the reviewing panelists.
Stay tuned for the exciting results!
