Art Omi Music Residency 2020 in USA


Applications are now open for Art Omi Music Residency 2020 in the USA.

Art Omi: Artist invites 30 artists from around the world, representing a wide diversity of artistic styles and practices, to gather in rural New York for four weeks each summer to experiment, collaborate and share ideas. Concentrated time for creative work is balanced with the stimulation of cultural exchange and critical appraisal. Art Omi residency programs offer artists the vital opportunity of space and time to create both individually and with one another. Lodging, meals and studio space on Omi’s beautiful 200-acre campus in the Hudson Valley are provided at no cost to the residents.

In general, all of Art Omi’s residency programs have a communal orientation. Sharing ideas, creative space, and meals comprise a major part of the Art Omi residency experience. Residents should expect to reside on campus throughout the duration of their residency and to attend nightly dinners with the rest of their cohort. Some relevant, offsite field trips may be organized by staff; participation is encouraged, but optional. Each residence has at least one public event, which invites the public to observe the creative process at work, and work produced while in residency here. Art Omi has several bedrooms, bathrooms, and studio spaces that are accessible to persons with disabilities.
