Who wouldn’t want to get paid to use their creative side and do what they love. For the following handful of artists, Light Work – based out of Syracuse, NY – has given them the chance to do exactly that in 2015.
Every year Light Work invites between twelve and fifteen artists to come to Syracuse to devote one month to creative projects. Over 400 artists have participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program, and many of them have gone on to achieve international acclaim.
The residency includes a $5,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual along with an essay commissioned by Light Work. Work by former Artists-in-Residence is also part of the Light Work Collection.
We are pleased to announce the 2015 Light Work Artists-in-Residence!
Whether or not these people strike a chord with our readers yet, the fact that a group such as Light Work is providing them residency is something of note. Keep an eye out for future endeavors from them.
