The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, is accepting applications for a new research residency program for artists that will allow them to utilize its resources, including the permanent collections and the holdings of the Rakow Research Library, to inform their practice.
Named for the museum's former executive director, the David Whitehouse Artist Residency for Research will enable artists to be in residence for up to three weeks to explore materials at the Rakow Library, the world's foremost library on the art and history of glass and glassmaking, and to use other scholarly resources available at the museum, including knowledgeable staff in all parts of the organization.
One resident will be selected for the first year to be in residence for up to three weeks in 2018. While in Corning, the artist will be asked to give a presentation about his or her work and research.
Artists who feel they would benefit from using the resources of the Rakow Library and spending some time at the Corning Museum of Glass are encouraged to apply.
See the Corning Museum website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
