This program offers the opportunity for professional artists to pursue their artistic discipline, create a body of work, connect with other artists, and engage the public, while interacting with the historic, archeological, and natural elements of the Estate’s inspiring environment. Other benefits include access to archives, education and interpretive staff, and possible grant and partnership opportunities. Artists are encouraged to interact with the public during their regular studio hours whenever possible.
The AIR program offers residents free access to the site and/or studio space for extended periods on the beautiful, inspiring, and historic site. Collaboration with other residents, Estate programs, and Estate partners are encouraged and welcomed. Each artist studio is slightly different, but all provide space in one of the historic buildings for two to 12 months.
The Deering Estate welcomes shared and collaborative residencies and seek to include a broad scope of contemporary and traditional artistic practices. The residency does not provide for overnight housing, and artists must provide their own supplies.
