Each year Millay Colony for the Arts invites 52 visual artists, writers and composers for a colony residency. Residents are chosen anonymously by a panel of jurors in each discipline. The application process is competitive and based solely on on the merit of the artist statement and work sample. Past jurors and their bios can be viewed on the Juries page. An article on the jury process can also be found in the Millay Colony Spring 2008 newsletter.
The Millay Colony has announced that, starting this year, they are adding three new offerings to their roster of artist residencies on its upstate New York/Berkshire area campus. While continuing to offer month-long residencies to visual artists, writers and composers, the Millay Colony is now offering three new ways to spend time as a resident: Two-week Residencies in the month of September, Virtual Residencies and Group Residencies.
Next Application Deadline: October 1, 2012
