Every year Light Work invites between twelve and fifteen artists to come to Syracuse to devote one month to creative projects. Over 400 artists have participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program, and many of them have gone on to achieve international acclaim.
The residency includes a $5,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual along with an essay commissioned by Light Work. Work by former Artists-in-Residence is also part of the Light Work Collection.
We are pleased to announce the 2019 Light Work Artists-in-Residence:
Congratulations to Carolyn Drake, Kris Graves, Pao Her, Mark McKnight. Meryl Meisler, Rafal Milach, Zora Murff, Sarker Protick, Arpita Shah, Cian Oba-Smith, Jiehao Su, Ka-Man Tse, and Cristina Velásquez.
