The BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) Residency is a way of actively fostering a culture and community of inclusion that promotes, respects, and celebrates this community. Individuals who identify as BIPOC artists are welcome to apply for this residency and for our other residencies.
Artists spend a month at The Studio exploring new directions in glass art or expanding on their current bodies of work while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum. During their residency, each artist gives a presentation about their work during a free public event in The Studio Lecture Room.
Transportation, as well as room and board, will be arranged for those invited to participate in the month-long Artist-in-Residence program. All basic supplies will be provided, and the facility will be made available whenever classes are not in session. Residents will have access to the Rakow Research Library and the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass. The residency manager will facilitate meetings with Museum experts and other resources.
Residencies take place in March, April, May, October, and November.
