Artists based in the United States will receive a $1,000USD monthly stipend for the duration of the residency as well as a $500USD travel stipend. Due to visa limitations, instead of a stipend, international artists-in-residence will be eligible to receive full reimbursement of qualified expenses, including airfare, ground transportation, meals, etc. During each residency, the Bemis Center hosts a public Open House/Open Studios program to give artists the opportunity to show attendees their processes and works-in-progress.
