Visiting Artist in Residence
We are currently accepting applications!
Sloss Furnaces Foundation hosts three, 8-week Visiting Artists throughout the year, typically in the Summer (June-Aug) and Fall (Sept-Nov).
This program is designed for emerging and mid-career artists interested in developing their studio practice and honing technical skills. Visiting Artists will be provided with a furnished apartment near Sloss Furnaces, all casting materials, and 24 hr. access to our sculpture facilities in Sloss' historic casting shed.
Visiting Artists are expected to have a final exhibition at The 600 at the conclusion of their residency. The majority of the work is to be displayed for up to a year, with the option to sell throughout the exhibition (15% of sales to Sloss, 85% of sales to the artist)
Artists are asked to donate one piece from their residency to Sloss Furnaces' permanent collection.
