Bernheim’s Artist in Residence program advances the idea of a “museum without walls” by encouraging artists to research and explore concepts in their work while utilizing the arboretum and forest. Established in 1980, this internationally renowned program annually awards artists the opportunity to live at Bernheim and create site-specific work inspired by their total immersion experience. The Artist in Residence program has allowed our visitors to experience nature in new ways while enhancing awareness of Bernheim’s mission of connecting people to nature. 

Deadline: January 18, 2021.

There are no residency or application fees, but the artist is responsible for all travel and other living expenses at Bernheim. $2500 stipend.
