Artist in Residence Workspace Grant

Deadline: October 15, 2012 (POSTMARK)

Artist in Residence Workspace Grant
For New York Emerging Artists

The Center for Book Arts
New York, NY

The Center for Book Arts is pleased to continue the Artist-in-Residence Workspace Grant for New York Emerging Artists program in 2013. Up to five New York-based emerging artists will be offered space, time and support to explore the production of artist’s books and related work for a full year. The purpose of this program is to promote experimentation in book arts, thus artists from all disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The Center especially encourages applications from artists of culturally diverse backgrounds.

Applications will not be accepted from students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs during the program year (January– December 2013). Applicants must live/work in New York State and must reside in the greater NYC metropolitan area at the time of application and during the residency.

Artists are encouraged to visit the Center for Book Arts prior to applying to this program. Artists do not need an appointment to visit.

There is no application fee.

$750-$1,500 cash stipend (depending on funding) plus a materials budget between $500 to $1,000 (depending on funding), 24 hour access to the Center’s printing and binding facilities for a full year, plus an individual studio space for 3 months.
Artists also receive approximately $3,000-$5,000 tuition waiver for courses throughout the year, planned in conjunction with the staff.
Experienced printers and bookbinders will be available to advise the artists on issues of materials and techniques as they arise.
