Artist in Residency Program – The Gershwin, NYC
(from the website)We have created an Artist-in-residence program (furnished with complimentary continental breakfast) to keep the artist alive so that art may live. As we believe that art goes with heart we want our laureates to welcome in their heart a place for the other endangered species: the children. We have included a children clause in the entry form.
We believe that your art will communicate its energy to the house and will affect people that will be surrounded by it.
There are no cash prizes for this event. All the laureates gain international exposure by being sponsored by us. Many PR efforts enable visibility and communication on the New York level as well as the international scene. Selection of the winners is by the vote from the jury (individuals actually involved in the arts!). The prizes consist of an offer of a room and a creative space that is shared with other creative persons for a specific amount of time (two weeks to three months). Services that are fundamental to the diffusion of creation are provided: a continental breakfast, fax and e-mail, exhibition space and vernissage and an occasional bottle of wine!
