Apply for the 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 in the Pottery or Iron/Brass Foundry and Enamel shop in Kohler Co.'s Kohler, Wisconsin, plant. With the guidance of an excellent staff, artists of all disciplines can explore new ideas and technologies in order to create a body of work impossible in their own studio as well as new ways of thinking and working. Previous experience with clay or metal sculpture is not required.
Artists accepted into the program receive housing, transportation, materials, use of equipment, studio space, photography services, and a small stipend. Artists-in-residence may work in the Kohler Co. Pottery, Iron and Brass Foundries, and Enamel Shop to develop a wide variety of work in clay, enameled cast iron, and brass including but not limited to murals and reliefs, temporary or permanent site-specific installations, and functional and sculptural forms.
Applications for the 2017 residencies are now being accepted from December 1, 2015 through April 1, 2016. Click here for the online application.
