Applications for the 2021 Artist in Residence program are currently open with deadline of Midnight EST January 18th, 2021.
Up to 4 artists are selected for residencies at Bernheim on an annual basis with a stipend of $2500. One residency is always dedicated to a regional artist currently living in Kentucky or in Clark and Floyd counties of Southern Indiana.
For over four decades, the Artist in Residence program has attracted artists from around the world who seek to use Bernheim as their inspiration. Established in 1980, Bernheim’s Artist in Residence Program annually awards artists the opportunity to live and create site specific work inspired by their total immersion experience in the natural environment. This internationally renowned program has hosted a multitude of sculptors, photographers, painters, printmakers, installation artists, videographers, and sound artists, as well as contemporary explorations of nature through science, sense and digital mediums. We encourage visual artists of all mediums, with the broadest range of diverse perspectives and experiences, to submit work for consideration.
In exchange for comfortable rustic housing, access to studio space, financial and staff support for the development of new work, artists will create a site-inspired artwork, temporary installation or project as a donation to the Bernheim Foundation. Recipients are also asked to engage the public with their work and/or process while in residence.
Artists are encouraged to explore ideas that reinforce Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature and to use their residency to take risks, experiment, and explore new avenues in their own work. Any questions can be addressed with Arts in Nature Curator Jenny Zeller, email@example.com.
