Up to five residencies will be awarded on July 15 and will take place between August 2023 through July 2024. The Vesterheim curatorial and folk art education staff will serve on the selection committee.
Each awarded artist will receive a stipend of $1500 toward the cost of travel, lodging, research, and materials for the residency project. The amount will be awarded upon arrival at Vesterheim for the residency.
Awarded artists will have access to the collection between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday, and can choose to spend their week-long residency during one scheduled week or split the week between two trips to Vesterheim.
Artist studio workspace may be available depending on the timeline of the artist’s visit. Vesterheim reserves the right to negotiate dates with awarded artists to ensure staff (and studio space if desired) is available to support the artist’s residency project. It is also acceptable for the artist to travel back and forth to Vesterheim and work in their own studio space.
