Artist Residency


Shandaken: Storm King is a residency program in collaboration with Shandaken Projects. Following their process-focused model, the residency encourages experimentation, research, and production by providing space and time for residents to do as they wish. Part of the program experience is living on the Storm King Art Center grounds and living with the rich history of the Hudson Valley region.

Past residents of Shandaken: Storm King have included visual artists, writers, curators, activists, dancers, and historians, among others. In 2019—the program’s 5th anniversary—15 artists were awarded private studios on Storm King’s 500-acre site.

The 2016 Shandaken Project at Storm King awarded 15 residencies.


The residency season begins June 8 and ends September 28. Artists working in and across the disciplines of sculpture, video, photography, performance, poetry, music, and critical writing are invited to apply.

Residencies are two to six weeks (at the artist’s discretion), with three artists on site at a time. This intimate scale encourages dialogue between residents, while the private setting of Storm King Art Center’s grounds allows for intense focus on individual practice. The artists are housed together on Storm King’s site and are each given a simple, private studio. Although Storm King’s grounds are open to the public during the residency, visitors to the Art Center are not permitted to visit the house or studios.  Residents are required to bring or buy their own tools and materials.
