Since October 2015, The Studios at MASS MoCA has hosted over 700 artists and writers from 22 countries for artist residencies of up to 8 weeks.
Hosted by MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists program, selected artists-in-residence receive private studio space on MASS MoCA’s campus, housing across the street from the museum in newly renovated apartments, free access to the museum’s galleries and partner institutions, shared use of printmaking and weaving equipment, optional financial and business coaching from Assets for Artists staff, and a daily group meal among a twelve-artist cohort of international peers.
The full-price residency fee is $650/week, but many participants receive need-based and merit-based financial aid. Select fellowships are listed on the Assets for Artist’s financial aid page and change from season to season. There is no application fee.
The next deadline for the Studios at MASS MoCA will be August 8, 2020, for the Winter/Spring 2021 residency season.
