The James Weldon Johnson Foundation is proud to partner with Bard College at Simons Rock for the second annual Artist-in-Residence program during Summer 2019. Located on the bucolic 220 acre Simons Rock Campus in Great Barrington, artists will be offered studio space in the Daniel Arts Center, one of the premier facilities in the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts.
The residency program seeks to support both established and emerging visual artists, writers, scholars and others whose work exemplifies the values that James Weldon Johnson dedicated his life to: social equity, creative expression, erudition, social justice and community. Ideally, the Fellows will find creative inspiration in each other, in the Simons Rock community and in the surrounding natural world. Throughout the residency, artists will be brought together with dynamic scholars, artists and students for lively discussions.
