2009 Environmental Art Residency Program

Deadline: February 23, 2009

I-Park will host an international environmental art program on the grounds of its 450-acre artists’ community in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.).  The program will consist of two, two-week focused residency sessions comprised of environmental artists, landscape/garden designers and other visual, music and performance-based artists whose work engages the natural landscape.  A public event will be scheduled for September 19, 2009 to showcase the work. 

The two identical residency sessions will be scheduled for:      

  •  August 17 – August 31, 2009 
  • September 2 – September 16, 2009

Artists/designers are invited to submit proposals for site-specific works on or about the land.  Twelve artists/designers will be selected by a three-person independent panel.  Artists will be awarded a grant of USD1,200 plus up to an additional USD1,000 for reimbursement of travel costs and/or materials.

Artists will be given space on the land to realize their environmental projects.  They will also be provided with comfortable living quarters and meals for the duration of their residency.
