Artist in residence program

2011 Artists in Residence Program at I-Park
Application Deadline: January 11, 2011

The I-Park Foundation, Inc., a 450-acre natural woodland retreat
in East Haddam, CT, announces its eleventh season hosting its
multi-disciplinary residency program.  Self-directed artistsâ019
residencies will be offered from May through November 2011, with
possible off-season sessions in April and December.  Most
sessions are four weeks in duration.  Residencies are offered to
creative individuals working in the following disciplines:
Visual (including Environmental) Art, Music Composition/Sound
Sculpture, Moving Image, Creative Writing and Landscape/Garden
Design.  Work samples are evaluated through a competitive,
juried process.
There is a $30 application processing fee required.  Accepted
artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as
transportation to and from the area.  The facility is otherwise
offered at no cost to accepted artists, including a basic meal
program where most, though not all, of the food is provided.
Accommodations at I-Park include comfortable private living
quarters in an 1850â019s era farmhouse and a private studio on
the grounds.  An abundance of power tools and equipment, musical
instruments and peripherals, site materials, an electric kiln,
wireless internet and library facilities are provided.
International applicants are welcome.  To defray the cost of
travel, six $750.00 grants will be offered in 2011 to
international artists whose work is held in particularly high
regard by the Grant Committee.
Application materials will be available online as of November
22, 2010.  For details, visit

In 2011, I-Park will also be hosting its third Environmental Art
Biennale as well as a summer Special Inter-Disciplinary Projects
residency.  Application and program materials for these separate
events will be available online in late December.
