This internationally renowned program offers artists an opportunity to work intensively in a private studio, receive individual critiques from faculty, and attend weekly lectures given by guest artists, critics, and gallery directors. The selected participant has exclusive use of a small studio located in the School of Visual Arts Chelsea Building. Faculty visits the studios Mondays through Thursdays. Exposure to the New York art world complements this on-site residency program. The program culminates in an open studio exhibition, which enables the participants to present their work to the public.
Created in 2004 by Moon and Stars Project and School of Visual Arts, the scholarship, to date, has enabled seven artists of Turkish origin to attend the program.
The scholarship is open to active professional artists residing in Turkey who are not represented by a gallery. Different from previous years, current students are not eligible to attend. Applicants should have fluency in English sufficient for engaging in meaningful dialogue with other participants.
