The BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) Residency is a way of actively fostering a culture and community of inclusion that promotes, respects, and celebrates individuals who identify as members of this community. Artists spend a month at The Studio exploring new directions in glassmaking or expanding on their current bodies of work while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum. Applicants who identify as BIPOC artists are welcome to apply for this residency and for our other residencies.
Transportation, as well as room and board, is provided for those selected to participate. A generous supply budget and a shared studio space is offered for each resident. Residents have access to the Rakow Research Library, the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass, and expert Museum staff. A residency manager serves as a liaison to additional services in Corning and at the Museum.
During the residency, artists are expected to make their own work. Each artist gives a presentation about their work during a free public event in The Studio Lecture Room. Residencies take place in March, April, May, October, and November. One or two individuals are selected for each month.`
