The Studios at MASS MoCA Residency Program Spring/Summer 2018
Artist & Writer Residencies hosted by MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists Program
Application for Sessions from April 4, 2018 – October 2, 2018
Application Deadline: January 8, 2018 11:59pm. No application fee. (Please note that if you are eligible to apply for a free 6-week residency — with travel assistance — for artists in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria, please go to http://bit.ly/2B27wST to apply by December 18, 2017.)
MASS MoCA invites artists and writers to apply for residencies from 1 week to 8 weeks in length…We welcome applications from artists in all career stages, income levels, and disciplines (painters, writers, fiber artists, printmakers, performers, designers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.) whose practice allows them to work quietly (no power tools in the private studios, and no music out loud – headphones only). Groups/collectives may apply to work on joint projects. The studios have light-duty ventilation, so an art practice generating strong fumes cannot be accommodated.
Full Cost~ $650/week
Financial Aid~ All applicants will be considered for subsidies based on artistic merit, readiness to benefit from the residency, and financial need.
Application Deadline~ January 8, 2018, 11:59pm. Click here to apply.
Alfred Abraham Knopf Sr. (September 12, 1892-August 11, 1984) was an American publisher of the 20th century, and founder of Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. His contemporaries included the likes of Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer, and (of the previous generation) Frank Nelson Doubleday, J. Henry Harper and Henry Holt. Knopf paid special attention to the quality of printing, binding, and design in his books, and earned a reputation as a purist in both content and presentation. ~https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_A._Knopf_Sr.
Asked how to say his name, Knopf told the Literary Digest: “Sound the k: k’nupf.”
