Storm King Art Center in Upstate New York will start its first-ever residency program in 2015 with the help of The Shandaken Project, which has run a program of its own for artists in the Catskills since 2012. From June to September, The Shandaken Project at Storm King, as the new program is called, will offer 15 residencies, between two and six weeks long, for three artists at a time. The residents will each be given a private studio and will be housed together at Storm King. The open call for applications begins today and ends February 20.
“Offering more artists the chance to work on the grounds of a world-renowned sculpture park is indescribably exciting,” Nicholas Weist, The Shandaken Project’s founding director, said in a statement. “The Shandaken Project is honored to become a part of Storm King’s already important history of supporting artists.”
About an hour’s drive from New York City, Storm King makes up 500 acres of the Hudson Valley and its collection includes work by Alexander Calder, Mark di Suvero, Louise Nevelson, and many others.
