Summer Residency Programs

Applications are now available for SVA's Summer Residencies in New York City, offering emerging and mid-career artists time, space and a supportive community in which to develop ideas and focus on their artistic direction. In addition to our time-honored studio residencies, a variety of innovative professional immersion programs provide opportunities for artists to explore new areas of social and technological practice. A unique combination of creative and professional resources provides a rich environment for growth and opportunity in the current, vibrant art scene. Affordable housing is available, as are opportunities to exhibit and present work to the public. 

Visiting artists, curators, administrators and critics have included Suzanne Anker, Jennifer Blessing, Marshall Arisman, Vince Aletti, Jan Avgikos, Heather Darcy-Bhandari, Meir Gal, Milton Glaser, Steven Heller, Sheri Pasquarella, Anne Pasternak, David Ross, Jerry Saltz, Kay Takeda and Simon Watson.
