Storm King Announces 2019 Artists-in-Residence

Storm King Art Center, in partnership with Shandaken Projects, has invited fifteen artists to participate in its artist-in-residence program. The selected artists will be allowed to stay on Storm King’s grounds in Cornwall, New York, for periods of up to two, four, or six weeks. They will receive room and board, studio space, and a weekly farm share from the nearby Blooming Hill Farm. The residency begins June 3 and runs through September 22.

The artists-in-residence were selected by a panel of art professionals from hundreds of applicants who had responded to an open call. The panel comprised Kenyon Adams, director of the Louis Armstrong House Museum; artist and residency alumna Ellie Krakow; Nora Lawrence, curator at Storm King; and Nicholas Weist, founding director of Shandaken Projects, a nonprofit that promotes cultural advancement through programming and artist services.

“Shandaken is proud to enter our fifth year of partnering with Storm King Art Center to offer free space and unstructured time on the grounds of a world renowned outdoor museum to artists from all over the country,” Weist said. The organization also runs a new residency program in collaboration with Governors Island. Lawrence added: “Each year’s group of residents approaches Storm King in new and innovative ways, and every individual adds to our community. We are thrilled to continue supporting artists though this partnership.”

This year’s cohort includes Shobun Baile, Abigail Raphael Collins, Joshua Escobar, Dalaeja Foreman, Tia-Simone Gardner, Shoghig Halajian, Ellie Hunter, Megan Mi-Ai Lee, Catalina Ouyang, Kamau Amu Patton, Estefania Puerta, Anni Puolakka, Pallavi Sen, Elizabeth Shores, Dean Spade, and Romily Alice Walden.
