Entry Fee (Torpedo Factory Art Center Visiting Artist Program): $50.00

The Visiting Artist Program is intended as a professional development opportunity for emerging and experienced visual artists, and to expose visitors to a new group of artists and projects. Applicants may apply for a 1, 2, 3, or 4-month summer residency, June through September. The projects undertaken by Visiting Artists for this residency is self-directed. Creative residency must be compatible with available working studio spaces and facilities. The Visiting Artist will have the opportunity for informal exchanges with other Torpedo Factory artists. As part of the program, each Visiting Artist is also asked to give a demonstration, elaborating on his/her process. Visiting Artists will be able to display and sell their original artwork and will be provided with workspace. Each Visiting Artist will pay one-half of the rent of the studio (amounts range between approximately $180 and $480 per month for the Visiting Artist, depending on the size of the studio space). The Torpedo Factory Art Center has very limited communal facilities. All expenses and arrangements related to art materials, equipment, transportation, housing or other requirements are the responsibility of the Visiting Artist.
