Pajama Factory Artist-in-Residence Program

Deadline: April 23, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Artist-in-Residence Program
Public Art Academy
Pajama Factory
Williamsport, PA
June and July 2010

Artist-in-Residence Program @ the Pajama Factory

The Summer 2010 Artist-in-Residence Program is designed to provide both emerging and established visual artists a place to grow creatively, as they work freely within the 300,000 square feet of rejuvenated industrial building that is the Pajama Factory.

The length of stay, as determined by the artist, is 4 weeks or 8 weeks during the months of June and July. The main focus of the PAA Artist-in-Residence Program is to encourage and support the creative development of the artists. Selected artists in turn are invited to give back to both the Public Art Academy and the Pajama Factory by taking an active role in the building’s creative community.

Selected artists will be provided with fully furnished living spaces on Williamsport’s “Millionaires Row” Historic district. These beautiful Victorian mansions (located at 912, 925 and 1005 West Fourth Street) are just a 15-minute walk from the studios at the Pajama Factory in one direction and to downtown Williamsport in the opposite direction.

To help the community of artists at the Pajama Factory continue to grow, the artists-in-residence will be given the option of either paying a weekly fee of $100 during their stay or working 10 hours-per-week with staff to help upgrade and maintain the grounds and facilities at the Pajama Factory and Public Art Academy. In addition, artists may be invited to participate with the Public Art Academy’s educational community outreach efforts through a presentation, colloquium and/or a demonstration workshop of their work.
