The Residency Program

Open to visual artists living in the U.S. or abroad with a graduate-level academic background and/or a record of work within the art field, focusing on site-specific installation and contemporary works. Priority will be given to artists who respond to natural, architectural, or community settings.  The program is based at Taliesin, in Spring Green, Wisconsin, and Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Frank Lloyd Wright established the Taliesin Fellowship in 1932, which was based on the idea of the allied arts fostered in a community of learners as an alternative to a traditional university. The program developed into what we know today as The School of Architecture at Taliesin.  From its origins, Taliesin has served as a living, working, educational space, forming a creative and diverse community of professional architects, artists, faculty, students, and staff.

Residency sessions are for a period of four weeks and final dates are confirmed upon acceptance. Extensions may be considered on an individual basis.

The Taliesin Artist Residency Program is supported by the Arizona Commission on the Arts with funding from the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts.  The commission’s purpose is to advocate for and link artists to communities by emphasizing the individual artist. It is also partly underwritten by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.
