The Corning Museum of Glass is a home to the world’s most comprehensive collection of glass, the world’s foremost library on glass, and one of the top glassworking schools in the world.
The museum invites applications for its Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) residency program. Artists spend a month at The Studio exploring new directions in glassmaking or expanding on their current bodies of work while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum. Transportation, as well as room and board, is provided for those selected to participate. Each resident is offered a generous supply budget and a shared studio space. Residents can access the Rakow Research Library, The Corning Museum of Glass collection, and expert Museum staff. A residency manager will serve as liaison to additional services in Corning and the Museum.
During the residency, artists are expected to do their work. Each artist presents their work during a free public event in The Studio Lecture Room. Residencies occur in March, April, May, October, and November. One or two individuals are selected for each month.
Applicants who identify as BIPOC artists are welcome to apply.
