ACRE Summer Artist Residency Program
The ACRE Residency Program takes place every summer in rural Southwest Wisconsin. Developed as a means to support emerging visual artists, sound artists, musicians, performers, writers, and curators, the program provides artists with the opportunity to expand upon their individual practices as well as take part in optional programming within a collaborative community. This summer we will continue with a restructured model focusing on smaller residencies with a reduced number of people on campus. Up-to-date vaccinations and a negative test before traveling are required for all visitors. For more information please see our On-Site Agreements which outline our protocols for staying at the farm in light of the ongoing pandemic.
Set on 1,000 acres of wetland, hills, and farmland, the residency facilities include expansive communal workspaces, a screen-printing studio, woodshop, ceramics studio, fibers studio, art & tech facility, and a sound studio. Two meals per day plus a light breakfast are provided and prepared daily using ingredients grown in the surrounding area.
Over the subsequent year, ACRE endeavors to provide further opportunities for exposure and community building to its alumni. Each resident is offered an exhibition opportunity at our Chicago gallery or one of a number of alternative exhibition spaces we partner within Chicago and is given access to an online “flat file,” where they can develop customizable pages to present their work. These efforts complement other activities and programming designed to create the conditions for a thriving and enduring arts network.
Scholarships are available.
