2011 Artists in Residence Program at I-Park

Application Deadline: January 11, 2011

The I-Park Foundation, Inc., a 450-acre natural woodland retreat in East Haddam, CT, announces its eleventh season hosting its multi-disciplinary residency program.  Self-directed artists' residencies will be offered from May through November 2011, with possible off-season sessions in April and December.  Most sessions are four weeks in duration.  Residencies are offered to creative individuals working in the following disciplines: Visual (including Environmental) Art, Music Composition/Sound Sculpture, Moving Image, Creative Writing and Landscape/Garden Design.  Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process. 

There is a $30 application processing fee required.  Accepted artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area.  The facility is otherwise offered at no cost to accepted artists, including a basic meal program where most, though not all, of the food is provided.

Accommodations at I-Park include comfortable private living quarters in an 1850's era farmhouse and a private studio on the grounds.  An abundance of power tools and equipment, musical instruments and peripherals, site materials, an electric kiln, wireless internet and library facilities are provided. 

International applicants are welcome.  To defray the cost of travel, six $750.00 grants will be offered in 2011 to international artists whose work is held in particularly high regard by the Grant Committee.

In 2011, I-Park will also be hosting its third Environmental Art Biennale as well as a summer Special Inter-Disciplinary Projects residency.  Application and program materials for these separate events will be available online in early 2011.
