David Whitehouse Research Residency for Artists

David Whitehouse Research Residency for Artists

The David Whitehouse Research Residency for Artists is open to artists who want to utilize the Museum’s resources, including the permanent collections and the holdings of the Rakow Research Library, to inform their practice. The residency is named for the former executive director of The Corning Museum of Glass, a highly-regarded scholar who worked to build the resources of the Rakow Library, and was a major supporter of artists working in glass today. Learn more about David Whitehouse. This residency gives artists the opportunity to deep dive into topics and further their knowledge or to provide research for a project.

The David Whitehouse Research Residency for Artists is not a “making” residency; no provisions will be made for artists to create work at The Studio. Residencies will be up to three weeks in length. Artists will be provided with transportation, and room and board. Residents will have access to the Rakow Research Library, the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass, and the Museum’s staff experts. The residency manager will facilitate meetings with Museum experts and other resources.
