Starting in 1976, Light Work has built a reputation for having one of the most beneficial and productive residencies in the art world. Some very familiar names have passed through our four-week residency program, including Carrie Mae Weems, Cindy Sherman, and Andres Serrano. Our residents count among today’s most driven and talented artists.
Residents receive a $4,000 stipend, ample staff support, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facility, and a free apartment for the duration of the residency. We also offer a $500 printing credit in our digital lab to encourage experimentation. Yes, it’s that kind of place.
Applying for a residency is easy and straightforward. We have a rolling deadline, so please submit your application as soon as you feel you’re ready.
