Skowhegan Summer Residency Program in Rural Maine

Skowhegan has a long tradition of offering artists the opportunity to engage fully with their studio practice, with their peers, and with distinguished faculty and mentors. The experience has proven to be transformative time and time again for those artists who are able to take full advantage of the experimentation and critical discourse possible in this unique community in Maine.

While on campus, participants are given individual studio spaces, as well as access to a sculpture studio, a fresco studio, a media lab, a library composed of over 10,000 volumes, over 300-acres of farmland, forests, and lakefront, and a rich community of artists. Alumni often report that the intensity of the Skowhegan experience has had a profound effect on their work and their lives. In order to allow others entry, no participant is allowed to return for a second summer. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

2018 Summer Session~ June 9 – August 11  ~  Deadline January 10, 2018

Writers, visual artists, composers, filmmakers, playwrights, interdisciplinary artists, and architects come from all parts of the United States and abroad.

MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. Emerging and established artists may apply in the following disciplines: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, literature, music composition, theatre, and visual arts.
