Fulbright Silvermine Residency
What is the Fulbright Silvermine Residency?
The residency fosters creative, intellectual and professional growth for emerging and established visual artists. The program is designed to bring residents together with colleagues and masters for intensive focus. Residents have access to professional world-class facilities and studio time, free from everyday pressures. Residents can pursue interdisciplinary projects among a community of working artists, and gain feedback from Silvermine Faculty and prominent Visiting Artists through constructive critiques.
This residency is made possible through a donation to IIE’s Centennial Fund in honor of Janet Hennessey Dilenschneider.
