Weir Farm Art Center
Visual artists in all media and all styles are encouraged to apply for residencies of two weeks to one month on on the pastoral grounds of Weir Farm National Historic Site. The Weir Farm Art Center’s program provides living and studio space for one artist at a time, although two artists working collaboratively may reside together. The residence is located in a charming 1,100 sq. ft. historic cottage, built in the mid 1800s and located on the Weir Farm site. A large, modern studio just a few steps from the residence is equipped with a professional easel, several large and small tables, and a variety of hand tools. Printmakers may rent off- site facilities through an affiliation with the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT. The cottage is comfortably furnished with linens, wired and wireless internet, and a fully equipped kitchen. Having a car is extremely helpful although it is not a necessity.
