Residency Details

In addition to the exhibition opportunity, Pittsburgh Glass Center is also offering two artist residencies. Artists may apply for just the exhibition or the exhibition and a residency. Artists applying for the residency do not have to be proficient in glass making, but should explain in their application how and why they want to incorporate glass into their work if glass is not their primary medium. Residencies will take place between October – December 2021, so artists applying for a residency must be available for a two-week period during this time. Artist residencies will include 10 days (approximately 80 hours) of studio time, $1,000 artist stipend, $500 travel allowance, $1,000 stipend to pay assistants, $500 for materials, and housing while in Pittsburgh.
