They say art imitates life, but in order for that art to be compelling, life must be lived to its fullest. There are many opportunities for artists to enrich their time and experience, and residency is a great way to expand horizons. Whether you wish to travel far from home or find something in your own backyard, so to speak, there are plenty of ways to get into the world and see things from a new perspective. Residency offers the chance for artists to collaborate and exhibit and so much more. Read on for a few upcoming residency application deadlines.
