Since October 2015, The Studios at MASS MoCA have hosted over 200 artists- and writers-in-residence, providing attractive studio space on the MASS MoCA campus, MASS MoCA member benefits during the residency, newly renovated housing, one group meal per day, and full access to the fiber arts and printmaking equipment at the nearby Makers’ Mill shared studio. The full-price residency fee is $650/week, but many participants receive need-based and merit-based financial aid.

Here’s what artists are saying about their residency experience in The Studios

“My residency at The Studios at MASS MoCA was a very special time of exploration, learning, stimulation, and fun. You have an unbeatable combination there: good studio space, nice accommodations, great location, congenial number and mix of artists, gracious staff, and the unusual bonus of the visual resources of the world-class exhibitions of MASS MoCA right there. A fantastic mix.”  — Linda Stillman, New York

“I was very impressed with how the residency was managed. Responses to questions were always prompt and friendly. This was so valuable to me, especially traveling from a long distance. I was able to really look forward to and enjoy the whole experience because of how well the residency details were managed.” — Jessica Bell, Vancouver

“Hospitality and administrative efforts were exceptional! I feel that the administrative team’s generosity, depth, and kindness set the tone for a culture that carried over to the residents.” — Brian Gillis, Eugene, Oregon
