Kohler Arts Center Arts/Industry Residencies, Wisconsin
Deadline for Applications: April 1 for residencies in the following year
Kim Cridler, Arts/Industry, Foundry, August 1-September 26, 1999
Apply for the John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s world-renowned Arts/Industry residency program!
Up to sixteen exceptional artists from around the world are chosen each year for two- to six-month residencies that give them access to the pottery or iron/brass foundry and enamel shop in Kohler Co.’s Kohler, Wisconsin, plant. The program provides 24/7 access to industrial studios, an excellent staff that will guide you through the process, time to explore new ideas and techniques, free housing, round-trip transportation, professional photography services, materials, use of industrial equipment, and a modest stipend.
The Corning/Kohler residency program is open to emerging and established artists working in any discipline. Artists-in-residence spend one month at The Corning Museum Studio and two–six months in Kohler Co.’s Foundry (casting iron and brass) or Pottery (slip-casting clay). Training in ceramics or metal sculpture is not required, but artists must have experience working with glass, and be capable of quickly mastering the industrial technologies.
Successful proposals will incorporate a unified project using the resources available at both institutions. Join those who have experienced one of the most unusual residencies in the world!
