Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest Invites Applications for Artist in Residence Program

This Deadline Expired: Monday, January 20, 2020

The Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in Clermont, Kentucky, welcomes applications for its Artist in Residence Program.

Established in 1980, the program provides artists with the opportunity to live and create site-specific work inspired by a total immersion experience in the natural environment. Through the program, regional visual artists currently living in Kentucky or in Clark or Floyd county in southern Indiana will be awarded an honorarium of $2,000 and a four- to eight-week residency during which they are encouraged to explore ideas that reinforce Bernheim’s mission of “connecting people with nature.”  

In exchange for a rustic one-bedroom cabin with full kitchen, bath and Wi-Fi, access to studio space, and financial and staff support, artists will be eexpected to create a site-inspired artwork, temporary installation, or project as a donation to the Bernheim Foundation. Recipients are asked to engage the public with their work and/or process, which may include but is not limited to demonstrations, workshops, lectures, and/or participation in one of Bernheim’s programs or annual events.

To be eligible, applicants must be a professional visual artist. Students may not apply.

See the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest website for an FAQ, a list of previous recipients, complete program guidelines, and application instructions.
