SPRUCETON INN ARTIST RESIDENCY
WHAT IS THE ARTIST RESIDENCY?
The short version: A handful of artists. One week each. Free stay. No strings attached.
The little bit longer version: Every September we accept applications online from writers and 2D artists, about seven of whom will be awarded a no-cost, 5 day, solo Artist Residency here at the Inn between January and March. We do not require that you produce anything in particular or show us your work when you're here. That said, one of favorite parts of this Residency is spending time with the Artists at the bar in Room One and learning about what they're up to. We've had 40 artists stay with us over the past five winters. We cannot wait to host more!
We will announce the 2020 recipients here on Friday, November 1st.
