International Artist Residency 2012 Season II / April 20, 2012
NARS International Artist Residency Program provides national and international artists with the opportunity to produce new work while engaging with the vibrant arts community in New York City. Artists-in-residence have access to an individual studio space and various professional development programs. Residents have an opportunity to share and present their work through artist talks, workshops, and lectures and receive studio visits by prominent New York City curators, critics and gallerists. The NARS Foundation seeks applications on two levels. The first level includes emerging and mid-career artists for whom appointments as residents may make a significant impact on their careers. The second level consists of artists with established national and/or international reputations for whom a change of environment may offer refreshment and inspiration.
Applications must be delivered to the office by 5 PM on April 20, 2012. Please note the new deadline. Applications and guidelines are available for download from our website: www.narsfoundation.org
