The Anderson Center’s Deaf Artists Residency (DAR) is an ASL-centric environment where Deaf artists can communicate and exchange ideas. The programme provides 5 Deaf artists of various disciplines the opportunity to come together to live, work and share ideas with other native ASL signers, while advancing their own personal artistic projects. For the 2022 season, the Anderson Center is only offering month-long residencies in June.
The Anderson Center campus is located on the 350-acre historic Tower View Estate, built by scientist and farmer Dr Alexander Pierce Anderson between 1915 and 1921, on the western edge of Red Wing, Minnesota, and its buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Center features a large sculpture garden, and is adjacent to the Cannon Valley Trail, a 20-mile biking and walking trail that runs from Cannon Falls to Red Wing.
Thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Arts, selected artists to participate in the cohort will receive a $1100 stipend for the month, reimbursement of up to $500 in travel costs, art-making resources, lodging and studio space, groceries, and chef-prepared communal dinners.
The residency is open to Deaf artists from around the world.
