Green-Wood’s new Artist-in-Residence program was created for emerging and mid-career artists to directly engage with the site’s unique art, history, and nature. Since its founding in 1838, the Cemetery has inspired generations of painters, writers, and musicians. The artist selected for this program will continue in that rich tradition of creative expression.

The residency is open to those living in New York City and working in the visual and/or performing arts. Special consideration will be given to those whose final project can engage communities within the surrounding neighborhoods of Green-Wood. The artist will be provided an honorarium and studio space in the Historic Landmark Gatehouse on Fort Hamilton Parkway, as well as access to the Cemetery’s professional staff and archives and historical collections. The 9-month residency will take place January – September 2021.
