The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, is accepting applications for a research residency program for glass artists that will allow one artist to use its resources, including the permanent collections and the holdings of the Rakow Research Library, to inform his or her practice.
Named for 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 who work in all parts of the organization.
One resident will be selected for the first year and will be in residence for up to three weeks in 2019. 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 from 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.
