ARTS/INDUSTRY RESIDENCY PROGRAM

ARTS/INDUSTRY RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Linda Cordell (NY), Pottery, 2003

Applications for 2019 residencies will be available February 1, 2018. Please check back!

Hundreds of artists have benefited from the celebrated Arts/Industry residency program since its beginning in 1974. Undoubtedly one of the most unusual ongoing collaborations between art and industry in the United States, it is conceived and administered by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and hosted by Kohler Co.

Arts/Industry offers artists the time and space to focus on the creation of new work, and a unique location for their studios. Artists-in-residence work at the Kohler Co. factory in the Pottery and/or Foundry. Artists need not have experience with clay or metal, just an interest in materials and the potential for the industrial environment and processes to influence their creative practice. Participants are exposed to a body of technical knowledge that enables and encourages them to explore new ways of thinking and working. For more information, please download the Arts/Industry brochure or visit our FAQs page.

Arts/Industry has been doing something remarkable for over 40 years—connecting artists with the resources, technology, and materials of Kohler Co., and providing a place to explore new ideas, processes, and perspectives. Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Each year up to 16 artists are selected for residencies in the Pottery and/or Foundry areas of the factory through a competitive jury process. No experience with clay or cast metal is required, just an interest in pursuing a new body of work and being open to new ideas. Residencies run from two to six months in length.

Artists-in-residence receive 24-hour access to studio space, materials, use of equipment, technical assistance, photographic services, housing, round-trip transportation, and a modest weekly stipend.

Application materials must include:

  • 20 images of the artist’s work
  • A résumé/CV (3 pages maximum)
  • A written project proposal (200 words or less)
  • Images supporting project proposal (3 images maximum)
  • Contact information for 4 professional references

For more information on the application process, contact the Arts/Industry coordinator at (920) 694-4548 orartsindustry@jmkac.org.

Applications for 2019 residencies will be available February 1, 2018. Please check back!
