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.
