Shandaken Project Opens New Residency at Storm King

Applications opened today for the Shandaken Project’s new residency program at the Storm King Art Center. Aptly titled “The Shandaken Project at Storm King,” the new program offers 15 two- to six-week residencies at the 500-acre Storm King campus in New Windsor, New York, allowing three artists on site at a time from June to September. Its namesake program in the Catskills town of Shandaken will accordingly be suspended. “Offering more artists the chance to work on the grounds of a world-renowned sculpture park is indescribably exciting,” said founding director Nicholas Weist. “The Shandaken Project is honored to become a part of Storm King’s already important history of supporting artists” — that is, including Alexander Calder, Andy Goldsworthy, Zhang Huan, Isamu Noguchi, Claes Oldenburg, Richard Serra, and Ursula von Rydingsvard, among others. A link to the application can be found on both the Shandaken and Storm King websites; submissions close on February 20 and awardees will be announced in March.
