General Artist Residency Program with open spots in May, Sept. & Oct. 2022.

The Anderson Center's Artist Residency Program is an opportunity for emerging, mid-career, and established artists working across all disciplines and based anywhere in the world.

Selected artists receive live/work space, fellowship & exchange within a 5-artist cohort, chef-prepared meals, and more. Application deadline is Jan. 15, 2022. The selected artist, wait-list, and runners-up will be notified by March 2, 2022. Applications are juried by a panel of professionals working in the field and former residents. There is only one application deadline for all three months of residencies.


Deaf Artists Residency Program in June 2022. 

The Anderson Center’s Deaf Artists Residency (DAR) is an opportunity for 5 Deaf artists to come together in an ASL-centric environment to create, communicate and exchange ideas.

The program was created in 2014 to enact the vision of a Deaf visual artist, Cynthia Weitzel, who designed and coordinates the program. The panelists who select residents are all accomplished Deaf Artists, some of which are also past residents.

Thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Arts, artists selected to participate in the cohort will receive a $1,100 stipend for the month, reimbursement of up to $500 in travel costs, and more. Application deadline is Jan. 15, 2022. The selected artists, wait-list, and runners-up will be notified by March 2, 2022.

This program is an opportunity for early-career / emerging artists living within the state of Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City to participate in a supportive and inspiring residency environment that empowers them to take risks, embrace challenges, and utilize unconventional approaches to problem-solving.

Thanks to support from the Jerome Foundation, a month-long cohort of five artists will each receive a $625/week stipend, a travel honorarium, documentation support, and more. Application deadline is Jan. 15, 2022. Selected artists, wait-list, and runners-up will be notified by March 2, 2022.
